Hello everyone. I thought I'd write and introduce ourselves.

My son (16 yrs old) and I (a little older) are student pilots and just bought our first plane. We bought a 1952 Tri-Pacer.

(For some reason, my computer shows that the picture was uploaded upside down.)

Nice looking airplane! If you have an iPhone this can occur when you take a picture with the home button (bottom of the phone) to the left in landscape mode. Apple doesn't tell you but they built the phone for rightys (I'm left handed, took me a while to figure this out.)

It's in a hangar in Warm Springs, Georgia at Roosevelt (5A9).

Jim, thanks for the info on the iPhone and landscape mode. I'm actually using an android phone but I am left-handed. I'll see if the theory applies to my phone too. Thanks again

Nice looking airplane! I'll be over at Callaway Gardens for a school reunion 20-22 April. Wonder if you'd like to show it off?
