The Stinson L-1 was the first of the L-birds, and local Senior Aeromedical Examiner Kevin Green fondly remembers the stories his dad would tell him about flying them during World War II. Pat Harker's 1941 example is one of 324 ever built, and one of only two currently flying.

He died far too soon, but lived long enough to see the beginnings of what his and his brother’s success at Kitty Hawk would mean to the world. We remember Wilbur with...

Is there anything cooler than a Mustang? That’s debatable, but how about a twin Mustang? EAA’s Jim Busha stopped in Douglas, Georgia, to visit noted restorer Tom Reilly who is actively rebuilding the prototype North American XP-82. This rare type was the last piston-engine fighter ordered by the U.S. Army Air Forces just before the dawn of the jet age. Of the handful of known survivors, just...
