I came across these pictures of N200G which is now restored as N500LN in Minesota. These pics were taken in 1963 at Oaktown, Indiana about 15 miles north of Vincennes.

When I was six or eight / used to see the Fieldair Lodestar , on trips South in the Family Phase One Vanguard  Hugh or 54 ?? Singer  Hugh Hugh .



South of Hamilton in the Hill Country , Remember once it Circling ' out the back ' round to the right , cut back throttles and Drop In ,
set cruise throttle to pull level on ' the run ' ,
big swathe of superphosphate , across  the flats off over up to the right , then On The Gas , acoustics up a few octaves there , Pulling Up and around away , right . To clear the
big lump of rock ( Hill / mountain ) at the end of the run . Big Throb from those Radials , even from a kilometer away , when he's On the Gas . Not sparing the sauce . Wink Smiley Smiley

Other time he was higher over more open country , more of a ' cruise ' . But a privlage to have seen it ' working in anger ' .



One Sat at M.o.T.a.T. for years , Super moulding under the rear fuse . Picture on google look like its been stripped for renovation .
Think it was a Low Time Airframe . The Fletchers  ( Thorp Defender derivitive ) had come out , Economics . Tigers could be had
for $ 500 or less , in the Late 60's . There were FIVE in the Shed down the road . Dismantled .

O.K. it wouldve been ' AIRWORK ' Id seen , in the yellow & White , Topdressing . Think they were based in Palmerston North . Airland renamed Airwork , renamed Fieldair . or Amalgamated or wotever .






o.k. theres C47 / DC3s there too . . .

Experiments with the Mercury TigerMoth , with a OS 10 , Control Line , with Flour were unsucessfull . Though the 10 yr old sarcastic acomplice's Eyes were visable after a few blinks
once he'd worn the sack of flour !.  Grin

You need Talc or Fine Sawdust for top dressing Scale things .








sorry about the Continental Drift .  Hugh Lips Sealed


BUGGER .

Hi Chris,
Coincidentally, my uncle Stan was a co-pilot on a Lodestar for Weatherhead Corp.  He flew out of Cleveland Hopkins in the late '50s and early '60s.  I once got to ride along on a trip to Petoskey, MI and back.  What a thrill that was for a 10 year old.  So, the Lodestar has always been one of my favorite airplanes.
