Dream taildragger: Cessna 170B!

Why I love taildraggers: I started flying with my dad in taildraggers off a grass strip behind our house! Taildraggers are true aviation for me. My dad rebuilt the Cessna 170B that I bought from him, and I met my husband through the airplane — he came to preheat the engine for me one winter day. So, it has many special memories with it, and I look forward to making memories with my son in it!
