Joe Burley sent some air-to-air photos of his Cadet.  I've posted a couple of them to the photo page of the website.  They will also appear in the random selection of photos on the home page.

The first is a fly-by my home. The second one is a Dart That Ibought in 1952 and restored in 1955.

Hi all,

Here is a picture of my late friend Joe White with his 1942 Culver N41726 S/N 444 taken about 1952.
As many of you out there may know this is the green and yellow Culver that Carl Badgett owns.

This 1946 Flying Magazine cover shows a Culver V with an experimental registration with what appears to be yokes instead of stick controls.

Hi all,

Here is a few pictures of N41706 S/N 415 taken about 1982. It sat outside on the ramp at Long Beach (CA) airport from about 1976 to 1982. I bought the remains for parts in 2010. Not one piece of wood other than the horizontal stabilizer survived the elements.

From what I can tell by looking at the airplane, it looks like someone was in the process of doing a rebuild and it was abandoned abruptly.

What really looks to have caused so much damage to the wood is it had a shoddy cover job that looks like someone put on a coat or two of dope, applied the finishing tapes and put on a thin coat of some sort of enamel. No silver or any other U.V. protection.

Even areas like the wings that should have had protection from the elements looked like moisture got under the fabric and stayed wet. It looked like it had been under water.

Well anyway that is the fate of S/N 415. Most of its metal parts are now in S/N 379.
