 To all Pitts enthusiasts & historians:

We are part of the team restoring Betty Skelton's Little Stinker at the
National Air & Space Museum. This aircraft is Pitts Serial Number 2, the
oldest surviving Pitts.

In 1948, this aircraft had both a windscreen and a canopy used for ferry
flights. When the Smithsonian acquired the aircraft, the canopy and
rails had been removed. We are looking for information regarding the
sliding canopy rails. Thanks in advance for your help!
