A Dakota's Rivets, it all goes back to childhood memories. Grown men buying sailboats, old timer cars, and old biplanes. Guided and inspired by adventure books they read when they were boys. My preferred literature was definitely exploration, with pirates a close second. Well read was a book about an uncle with many cousins. He owned several DC3s and traveled through Africa taking his kin for rides. Rich adventure, and of course I saw myself as the pilot. My first actual flight was as a passenger in a DC3, fourth class. I believe it was in the late 1950's. My Dad dropped me off at the Dakota's foldout stairs, made sure it took off, and then boarded a Constellation to New York. I overlooked the wing of the DC3 during flight and remember praying the rivets would hold till London.
