Addison Texas Spartan
I made a visit to Addison airport, North of Dallas, last week to attend the FLYING magazine Parade of Planes. While I was there I was able to arrange a visit to see Spartan Executive s/n 26. Very clean, very nice. The metal is nice and straight... not a dent or a ding in the clean light gray and blue paint scheme. In talking with the owner, Bobby Lett, he suspected that since this ship flew with the military it has been wearing full paint since it left the service. S/N 26 was in the service from 1943-1945. It flew in the USAAC as 42-38266 . The Des Moines Register newspaper was its first owner and it was fully polished when it left Spartan.
Additional Spartan news...
S/N 17 is making progress toward flight. Current work has its legs being rebuilt so it can stand on its own wheels again. Centennial Aircraft Services is returning this ship to flight status.
S/N 13 is also being brought back to flight status. Follow the progress of this ships rebuild here.
