Going thru an old photo album (remember those) I found this pic from the day I met Jim Wildharbor June 3, 1984 @ Bourland Field in Texas. The Texas group had gone to the Pate Museum of Transportation which closed in 2009.

YUP, that's me in the picture with N3415D, a 1955 170B I purchased in 1984 from an IA in Montana. The price of purchase included a new 1956 paint scheme, interior and engine overhaul. I took delivery in Denver July 2, 1983 at Aprapahoe County Field (now Centennial KAPA) in Colorado and flew it to its new home in Texas. In 2006, I had the plane repainted in the original 1955 scheme and new interior installed in Mena, Arkansas. From Mena AR I flew to Kelowna B.C. Canada for the International Cessna 170 Convention and won "Peoples Choice" Award.

Footnote: N2981D was my first Cessna 170B. I purchased it, with a partner, in Long Beach, California Jan. 17, 1971 and landed in Anchorage, Alaska Jan 26. What a winter flight experience that trip was.

Mark is referring to being able to upload larger files to the website, not enlarging a picture already uploaded.

Not the best example of a 170B nor the worst, but the old girl still gets plenty of attention when she shows up on a flight line…
