The plane that started it all - for me, Curtiss Robin C-1, "The Texas Lady".

This is my first time to try blogging. I chose to make the topic about my interests in Antique Airplanes and Aviation History. So to start it all off, I have to pay tribute to our family heirloom, the Robin. Built in 1929, this Curtiss-Robertson "Robin" model C-1 has been a part of our family since 1967 when my dad (John Bowden) bought it from a Mr. Harold Owen in Seymour, Missouri. I was 3-yrs old at the time. I'll be adding more information and stories about the Robin in future posts. For now, I'll just say that this Robin holds a special place in my heart and in the hearts of our whole family. The memories of my youth are filled with Robin stories and the special times I spent with my dad working on this plane and flying with him. She's a grand old bird with a colorful history. Look for more on NR82H in the future.
