  Jeff,

I can relate to your regret in selling your trusty S1C.  Last year I 
sold my first Pitts (see my "Last Page" article last summer).  It's nice 
to see that some of the early Pitts S1's are still flying.  Last year I 
sold S/N 11 which was the famous N8L (see Budd Davisson's Pitts Specials 
book) which was built by Pat Ledford and Curtis Pitts, and which was the 
testbed for the first Pitts roundwings.  That was a fun little airplane. 
It's not the highest performance Pitts anymore, but she could teach you 
a lot.  Someday when I'm rich I'll buy her back.

Does anyone have any idea what is the oldest Pitts still flying?
