The Air Knocker NC9193E

Ray has finished his flight training on April 27 1948. This was his first milestone in a
new endeavor. He still flew in the Cessna 120 but now was looking to purchase an airplane of his own.

Rey looked for his airplane and  he  found his new airplane
from friends in the airplane community.

His pick was an Aeronca Chief from Leon Todd of Houghton Lake, MI on August 30, 1948.
Tail number NC9193E.

You may wonder about the heading The Air Knocker.

This is what Rey called his airplane.  I remember this from our first flight with him in 1948.
I was 6 years old then but those memories are still intact.

Rey sold the Air Knocker on September 19, 1949.
