I’m really looking forward to this annual inspection. A nice pre-war Super Chief, has original style gauges and a low time Lycoming O-145. These older aircraft usually need some special attention of one sort or another, but at first glance this one looks to have been well taken care of.

The down side to this beauty is that it has say dormant for a couple of years. For that reason, the owner asked me if I would be willing to do the post maintenance flight and put a couple of hours on the engine and airframe. Well, I suppose that it may reflect poorly of my confidence in my maintenance abilities if I declined and besides, who turns down the opportunity to fly a vintage taildragger?
