EAA Video of Monocoupe 110 Special

Monocoupes really are a special breed of airplane. The Clipwing was the "hot rod" of the skies back in the 1930s. Today they are a rare aeronautical treasure. I have been fortunate to fly with Kelly Mahon in Clipwing N2347. This EAA video tells the story well! Hats off to Kelly for sharing this airplane and to Connor Madison for the awesome photos.

Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum Opening


April of 2023 will see the opening of the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum in Atchison, Kansas. At the center of the museum is a surviving example of a Lockheed 10E, the same model as Earhart's. 149 Lockheed 10s were built and only about 13 airframes survive around the world. The story of Amelia, her aviation exploits and mysterious 1937 round the world flight will be told at this new museum. It will be worth the visit.
