I am a former president of the Arizona OX-5’ers. I have been out of the picture for several years as the Arizona bunch no longer meets largely due to no leadership along with so few members still living.
However, I have been working with my friend, Ed Newberg, on getting his 1928 Travelair 2000 flying.
Yesterday, success! Here are a few photos of NC-4848:

I flew chase in Kurt Gearhart’s Stearman (955) while Kurt made these masterful shots.
