    Default ercoupe s/n 1

    Rare photo from years ago - my dad took it. He is gone now, but others can enjoy this one. This may be the wrong place to put it, but not sure where it should go.

    The first airplane I ever sat in was an Ercoupe. I was thrilled to death because it had two tails, just like a P-38 Lightning (hey, I was twelve)! I didn't realize then what a true beauty I was sitting in, but it definitely did make an impression on me.

    I learned to fly in 1961 in Marathon, Florida; soloed after ten hours in a C-85 Ercoupe that I had bought after just eight hours of instruction. I flew that airplane (N99462) from Key West to Martha's Vineyard and every where in between. It was a GREAT airplane in spite of what the disbelievers would have you believe. 462 was white with red trim and rag wings (later swapped out for metal), although I had a friend in Marathon with a polished aluminum C-85 like the one shown. Nice picture...
