|When the Lakes was put back into production in 1974, this is one of the paint schemes that you could get.
Another one was the same design but with red in place of the blue. I think it is a neat design on the Lakes.
|This is Ted and Beverly Beckwith's 1st generation Great Lakes that they restored and went on the 2003 National Air Tour. Ted and Beverly are from Tenn. The engine is a Warner radial.||Randy Henson looks to be having the most fun. He is flying the Great Lakes! Randy is from Texas and loves his 1976 2T-1A. Shawn Tucker was nice enough to join the picture.|
|N number: N305GL built by Don Wilcox was owned and flown by Charley Humphey. We understand Charlie has sold it. Engine is a 175 hp Ranger. What a great airplane! Charley lives in AZ and is soon to move to TX. He has started a great resource for Lakes builders, owners and fliers. Click here to find out about it.||
This homebuilt Lakes is owned by Mike Danielle Mike tells me it
built by Jack Kahle of Aurora OR. in 1996. He says the Ranger is
smooth and makes a neat sound (like a radial). It wheel lands
easily and aways draws a crowd. Mike just put a rebuilt engine in
it. Another beauty! More pictures on photo page 4.|

smoke system on it too! This plane is now in a recover- 2009|
