Aug. 6 ï¿½ A former owner of our AOPA Sweepstakes Waco UPF-7, Spud Gili, dropped by the AOPA tent at Oshkosh this year to relate that a picture of our 1940 Waco UPF-7, N29352, once hung on the terminal wall at Islip. (That is its original N number.) One of our AOPA members checked recently, however, and found that our Waco is no longer pictured there. If any Islip airport officials remember the photo, we would like to hear from them. Spud added this tidbit of information about our open-cockpit biplane. It once spent several years stored in deteriorating condition on a New Jersey farm. When finally hauled away, the steel tube cage of the fuselage had sunk several inches into the mud. Other than that, the past history of our Waco, especially in the 1940s and 1950s, has been difficult to find. If you have any information, send it to the writer of our Waco series, Al Marsh, at email@example.com, or call Marsh at 301/695-2358.
