Garage sale find


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
This past weekend I picked upped a LT-40 from a garage sale in Ingersoll Ont. The plane has been through several owners. The original owner's Maac number is on the wing. So a little digging around I found out his name is Charles s Thwaites MAAC 15L. I'll prob use the trainer to help train students this summer at our local club. If anyone knows of this past member it would be cool to let his family know his old plane is still flying and teaching kids to fly.

Re: Garage sale find

Nice idea Joe! With a MAAC number that low I wouldn't be too surprising if he is no longer with us.

I did the validate the member link on the MAAC website, and it says it's not valid for 2016/2017. I'm sure the family would be thrilled if they heard an airplane of his is still flying.

Re: Garage sale find

Oh wow! "15L." Just think about that - this gentleman was the 15th registered MAAC member in Canada! My MAAC number, 22527, was issued to me in the summer of 1978. Just imagine when he got his. For all we know, he may very well have been one of MAAC's founders. I'd love to know more about him. And, as others have said, I'm sure that any of his relatives would be thrilled to know that the LT 40 is still around and will again take to the air.

Re: Garage sale find

I was given a broken wing with MAAC 9009 on it.
I can't get a name with just the number, I'd like to put his name on the wing which is repaired and flies again.
How does one get the name?

Yup did that already. That's how I got the name. Searched Facebook for some family but no luck yet. The LT-40 is covered in fabric thats how far back it goes. Yes, 15L Maac number blows my mind as well. My Maac number is 68218.
