UPDATE: C-45 Looking For Good Home – Click For Details

WARBIRD RADIO – Growing up near Jim Dering’s hangar was an experience.  It was the first place I remember feeling useful when it came to working on an airplane.  Mr. Dering had a job for everyone (even 10 year old kids hanging around with their Dad).  The old crop duster strip was filled with cobwebs and smelled like fertilizer and radial engine oil but something about that combination expanded the mind and dreams and flight.  No matter what the project was there was always a sense of calm and “can do” around Mr. Dering’s work bench. For years Mr. Dering was an instructor at the local community college and taught young folks how to work on cars and trucks.  Airplanes were his hobby but his teaching skills carried over.  Mr. Dering and my Dad were both involved in the local CAF wing and it was their mentoring that lead to my life long love of aviation. Mr. Dering loved his C-45.  It’s almost been a year since he flew west and now it’s time to find the Cannonball Express a good home.  The old girl has been kept inside and was in the process of “getting cleaned up” when Mr. Dering’s health began to slip. The C-45 (and log books) can be seen by appointment and later this week we’ll post some of the details.  In the meantime take a look at the gallery and help us find this grand old bird a good home where the next generation of aviators can be inspired. FYI…there’s also a Funk and a whole hangar filled with good stuff that needs a home as well. ~  Matt Jolley EMAIL FOR DETIALS:  [email protected]  (Subject line put C-45) UPDATE: Log book basics for potential buyers RIGHT ENGINE:  289.6 SMOH LEFT ENGINE:  36.2 SMOH PROPS:  OVERHAULED APRIL 4TH 2001 / LAST INSPECTED (BY SAN ANTONIO PROP) 5/07 WITH 232.HOURS SINCE OVERHAUL AIRFRAME:  AEROSPACE PRODUCTS SPAR STRAP IN 1979 (1509-1 / SN 269 / STC SA 3009) TT ON AIRFRAME:  7288.2 HRS AD / 77-19-07 COMPLETED IN 1998 LAST ANNUAL INSPECTION WAS MAY 21ST 2007 ENGINES WERE RUN 6 MONTHS AGO AND MAG CHECKS OKAY ACCORDING TO PILOT MAKE OFFER UPON INSPECTION C-45 PHOTO GALLERY:  Read More →
