1942 Waco ZPF-7 NC32162


I got a chance to go for a ride in a WACO at GAI yesterday. The pilot was very cool and let me take the stick and play for a while, and then walked me through some simple moves, aileron rolls, hammerhead, wingovers. He's based out of Culpepper, Virginia, and I would highly recommend going up with this guy (his name's John Corradi). If he knows you're a pilot (or a wannabe like me) he's very easygoing and fun to fly with, and he was willing to show me moves and then let me try them. (http://www.blueridgebiplanes.com/)

And the plane is absolutely beautiful: a fully restored 1942 WACO ZPF-7, big 7-cylinder 282hp engine, but slow (<60mph>
