Pat Harker from Anoka stopped at 21D on 2 Sept.'03.  He flew a 1946 Consolidated Vultee, powered by a 245 hp. Franklin O425-9.  It has a 41 foot wing and weighs 2300 pounds.  It stalls at 35 mph and cruises at 95 mph and burns 15 gallons per hour.  It has 'slots' in the leading edge if the wing, and full length 'spades / counter weights' on the ailerons.  In combat operations, two stretchers could be installed in the cavernous back seat area.
