Playing with the new iPhone camera with our PT-19 trainer as a subject.
She’s a tail-dragger, something I haven’t flown yet (although I have flown in her).
The open cockpit is a hoot to ride in. The tube & fabric body is quite a change for those accustomed to aluminum and titanium.
The cockpit is simple and you can see just how basic the tubular structure of the body is.
The prop is wooden, but it gets the job done.
The brightly colored tail is rakish – the color combo is spectacular. (It also makes you easy to spot after an “off-field” landing, a good thing if you’re a training aircraft!)
