  1. Here's a couple more pictures:
  2. Thank you very much! It looks like the really small part says 'mirage q' un car' I would love to figure out who this Hirsch character is. I have seen this photo without the caption and with the caption and I wonder if it is attributed to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This is the plane: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caudron_Simoun
  3. Based on my experience I immediately assume that you'll be putting an oil control ring on at least 1 cylinder.
  4. Splitting an atom is ok. Splitting hairs is stupid.
  5. There's a particular word that caught my interest, any help is appreciated, I googled about all of the googling I cared to do this morning and couldn't find the text or source of the written caption on this photo:
  6. Who needs a funnel...
  7. Wow not a single person said "Airplane" now that's a crying shame. During the first flight training that I got during summer camp at Culver Military Academy, part of our ground school was watching aviation movies.
  8. Send Mike Elliot a message and see what his availability is, he's on here as Mike Elliot. I think Don Kaye is probably a lot closer though, but I have no personal knowledge of his status with regards to anything.
  9. Exactly what I was fishing for...thanks!
  10. I'm guessing that no one ever heard, or happens to know what kind of useful load Jake Clemens ended up with.
  11. He's the man who would know.
  12. Well this is now officially a bump because I never found the useful load number. According to the memory of things I have read on here, a 252 is eligible for a 200lbs weight increase.
  13. Just for information, I am based about 300 feet away from Hawk, he paints a lot of planes over there and they all come out looking good. I've inspected several of them close up, and I'm no kind of paint expert but if I was getting mine painted he would be who I would use. I realize it wouldn't be the most convenient from Louisiana but the sacrifice of convenience is worth a lack of frustration to me.
  14. Wow
  15. Stupid thing didn't attach the first time.
