Nicholas Chittenden sent photos of his Aeronca C3, G-AEFT s/n A.610:
This Aeronca C3 has been in England since she was built in 1936. Prior to the Second World War she was based at Lympne, and survived a landing in the English Channel. Since then she has been rebuilt (3 times!) by a variety of owners including the well known aviation author, engineer and pilot Arthur Orde-Hume, and Lieutenant Commander John Sproule, another pivotal figure in pre and post war British aviation. In 1986 she appeared in the BBC Television Film 'Flying For Fun', an adaptation of the book of the same name written by Jack Parham, a light hearted account of owning and flying an Aeronca C2 before the Second World War. I've owned her since 1996, and base her on a private airstrip in Cornwall. During the 1950s she was rebuilt using a variety of components from British built Aeronca 100s, this is why she sports double landing wires and wooden ailerons.
Nicholas is also rebuilding an Aeronca C2 from a pile of bits. He would be delighted to hear from any C2 owners and restorers who would be prepared to assist with photographs and reference material.
