Spartan Executive NC17662 to Texas
Spartan Executive serial number 28, NC17662 has a new home in Mount Pleasant, Texas. The Mid America Flight Museum has an impressive collection of vintage aircraft and the Spartan 7W is a welcome addition. Especially for this Spartan enthusiast!
Serial number 28 was built in 1940 and served as a executive transport for the Spartan Aircraft Company. Maxwell Balfour, the Spartan Sales Manager, flew this 7W all around the country to promote the aircraft and visit the Spartan Schools in Muskogee and Miami, Oklahoma.
One interesting add on this Executive featured in years past was wing tip fuel tanks! The only 7W to be fitted with tip tanks.
We look forward to posting more photos of serial number 28 upon our next visit to East Texas.
