DC-3 can do 2900' if it's light, can't it? Hangar might be another issue, though.

I can but my issue is 2 fold.  1: My hanger is only 100' wide.  2) The runway has trees down the edge of the entire runway and a bank on the other side.  No room for mistakes and no room for a 3 :-(

The eternal dilemma, need vs want, glad to see you chose well!

I spend my money on my women, good red wine, and airplanes.....the rest is wasted

That is a stunningly beautiful airplane.  Love it, lots of history and just pure aviation..

Radical engines on a gorgeous airframe.  You own a piece of history enjoy it.

I want one!

Wow Glenn! This is just about the coolest airplane ever.  My grandfather had a 10A. I think I spent more time at OSH staring at a 12A than any other plane. Congratulations. I hope I get to see it some day!
