Mine isn't there, but I did recognize several. I'm not sure who owned the polised/red one featured in the very first clip, but I recognize the location as Marion, Iowa during the 1992 170 convention. The airplane to the left that's painted similar to my old scheme and colors is a '52 B belonging to Bob and Carol Coats out of Cabool, Missouri. The airplane in the second clip was at Albertville, Alabama for the 1996 convention, and is N2320D, then owned by Jim Beyer, now owned by his son Charlie, and is now white/red in the original scheme. Later on in the video, I don't know who owns/owned N2973D, but it's at Columbia, California at a North/South Fly-In.

Miles, Isn't that yours in the background in the first 7 seconds of the video?

Gary, you aren't the first to make that mistake. That is the one I said belongs to Bob and Carol Coats in Missouri. The colors and scheme are very close, but not the same. Compare the one in the first few seconds of the video to this photo of mine. The lower stripe on my fuselage was straight while the one on Bob and Carol's is tapered. Also, if you could see the whole airplane, Bob and Carol's is a 52, with the obviously different cowl.

Guess I should have read your post a little closer. :oops:
