Dec 4, 2010 Pietenpohl

Dad says, “There is a guy here who is rebuilding a Pietenpohl that will have a Corvair engine in it. He is Bill Princell. I’ve seen his project. Bill found out about a man down at Columbus IN (Larry Mordock)who was rebuilding one also and it has a Model A Ford engine in it. The Peitenpohl was designed about 1929 and the original had a Model A Ford engine. Bernie Pietenpohl made his using local lumberyard wood. I rode down to Columbus yesterday with Bill to see the one at Columbus. These airplanes are built to fly low and slow.”
