Dan, right, owned this plane in 1975 and sold it in 1978. He kept his eyes open and found it for sale again 30 years later and bought it back. It had sentimental value as his two daughters got their first airplane rides in it. Dan flies his J-3 out of Galt Airport in northeastern Illinois, the photo was taken there. The bottom photo was taken on a camping trip to the Mississippi River. Dan purchased this J-3 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It was in poor condition and Dan rebuilt it with help from good friend Dick Wydra to like-new condition using many parts and supplies from Wag-Aero including fabric and finishing materials, wing tanks and interior. He used this plane for flight instruction doing seaplane ratings for a couple of years. He sold the plane several years ago to a local pilot who then sold it last spring. Dan got a call from the present owner asking about the rebuild project. As Dan tells it, The phone conversation started with Hi, Im Tom Reeder. The voice and name sounded familiar and I asked if this was the Tom Reeder that flew DC-3s for Air Sunshine in Key West in 1976. His response was, Dan? Both men had started their airline careers together 40 years ago. They hadnt kept in touch all that time, but were reacquainted through the Cub. The plane is now kept on Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia where Tom and his wife live.
