The conversation went like this,
Greg: "Does it fly?"
Plane owner: "Not yet. I just have to get it over to the paint shop..."We were not convinced. This plane was missing too many pieces and was a bit too dusty to get back into the air any time soon. The man had us beat in experience, however, so who knows, he may be correct. Reportedly, he has been flying since 1939. We didn't ask him if this was the plane he learned on or not.
