A tribute to the famous "Citabria®"
A pre-war Chief of a different color, the "Citabria®"
was first introduced by the Aeronca Champion Aircraft Corp. in the mid 1960's.
Their famous Aeronca Champ, a plane in which d.freemont took his 1st airplane
ride, was the basis for the souped-up and acrobatic air worthy plane known as
the "Citabria®." Citabria® spelled backwards is Airbatic.
The Airbatic “Citabria®” is sacred to d.freemont because of the relationship
not only to the creator (df), but also for the relationship it has to famous
persons. The Taylor Craft Corp, after a series of buyouts, nurtured this
great little airplane into the famous “Citabria®”… derivation of the name is
Airbatic spelled backward, now owned by Bellanca Aircraft. The principal
engine was a Lycoming, interestingly; df graduated from Lycoming College in
Lycoming County, Pa, the site of Lycoming Engine Corp. Originally
built in north western Pennsylvania, these airplanes were used in greater
numbers as trainers – in fact, df had his earliest training in one.
The death of the world famous airman Steve Fossett in a Citabria® has many
thinking about the unusual circumstances, like the great number of pilots lost
in what is now called the Nevada triangle. Steve lost his life on a clear day
less than 100 miles from his field. Some of his remains were located a year
later. Is there any mystery here… df thinks so! The Citabria® is a fully
certified Airbatic aircraft with more than adequate power to negotiate excessive
winds and turbulence at lower altitudes. The Nevada triangle is now being
scrutinized by many associated with recently complied facts about lost aircraft
in the neighborhood of Area 51.
Steve Fossett was flying a Citabria® on the day he went missing.
