I've posted the Wichita factory photos on the website.  They're accessable from the main photo page by clicking on the thumbnail image.

I've just posted 3 Dart photos from Tim Lunceford.  Two of the photos are of serial number one, and the third is of the Dart he flies.  It's serial number two, which belongs to his Daughter.

I posted a photo this evening of Joe Burley and Stan Piteau taken following a flight in Joe's Cadet.  They met-up at Sun-N-Fun.

It occurred to me that not everyone may be seeing all of the photos on the home page.  There are currently 33 photos that are randomly selected for display on the home page of the website.  If you aren't seeing a different photo almost every time you visit culvercadet.com, you should set your browser to check for newer versions of stored pages each time you visit a site.  If your web browser isn't set to do this, it just reloads the same image that's stored in your cache time after time.  In Internet Explorer, go to Internet Options, General, Browsing History, Settings, under "Check for newer versions of stored pages", select the option:  "Every time I visit the webpage".

Tug of war?  Culver vs. Cadillac?

Here is NC37803 at Aztec NM, 1978 or 1979. My dad was in the process of rebuilding this airplane and had it to this state of completion when he died in an accident in April of 1978.

I received a note from Stefan Janes this morning.  You may recall that last year he purchased Cadet N25U and exported it to his home in Germany.  He now has it flying and has based it on a 1500 ft glider field near Ramstein AFB.  He included a couple of photos which I have posted on the website.  The photos are also in the rotation on the home page.

I received an email from Neil Deye today with a photo of the first flight of his newly restored Cadet.  He purchased it out of a museum and then completely restored it.  The Cadet is N37828 which graced the cover of the April 1998 issue of Vintage Airplane.  It's also the subject of a nice article in the same issue.  Unfortunately the back issues available online only go back to 2000.  Here's a link to the photo he sent:

He has promised some more photos taken during the restoration process.
