Curtiss Robin Page - July 2011 Feature Robin

Barnstmr is pleased to announce the addition of a new Curtiss Robin Page on Barnstmr's Random Aeronautics web-log. We have added it as a new "tab" at the top of this site. We hope you will visit this page often to see what's going on in the Curtiss Robin world.

Feature Robin s/n 393 - July 2011

Al Holloway, Quincy, CA recently sent me some nice photos of his Curtiss Robin B rebuild project. Al, founder of Holloway Engineering, is a noted restorer of old airplanes and even more recognized for his engine overhaul expertise. These photos illustrate the outstanding work he is doing to preserve his OX-5 powered Robin s/n 393. This Robin was originally registered as NC45H, but is currently showing on the FAA registry as NC127H. I asked Al to help me out with a writeup and he promised to do so. But that was over a month ago. I am sure he is busy working on the Robin. And besides, these photos say all that needs to be said about Al's beautiful craftsmanship.
