New addition to our flying family

Three Generations of Nickisch Pilots just returned with the newest addition to the Coyote Air fleet.  Dirk, Willard and Bremner flew the Stinson 108 from Texas to Alaska.  She is a beauty and very retro with lovely wood paneled interior.

I have just found out that you have bought N60F a 108-3 Stinson.
I am looking at the picture and it brings back a lot of memories.
You see I owned this plane in the late 60’s and early 70’s and I have a lot of hours in this plane. It looks just like it did wnen I owned it.
I would if you could keep me informed of how it is doing.
The last I hard it was tied up in a court case and I’ve never hard back from the party involved in the suit, But if you would keep me in formed.

This is a facebook album of the airplane N60F when our family owned it.

I am so happy to see N60F alive and adventuring in “Alaska’s remote arctic region.”

Tommy B. R. Thompson bought the airplane in late 1965 or early 1966.

N60F, a Stinson “Flying Station Wagon,” was originally owned by a member of the “Flying Farmers.”

We made many flights along the gulf coast of Texas and Mexico, sometimes landing on a remote beach of Padre Island to fish for red snapper.

N60F opened up a whole new world for us.

I touched the outside of it. I peered inside. I want to go for a ride in this beautiful bird – with my camera, of course. This plane couldn’t go to a more deserving family of fliers.

My dad owned that plan back in the late 60s to early 70s and kept it at White Rock Airport in Dallas. It still looks exactly the same as I remember it. I know I have a photo of it somewhere and will try to get you a copy of it. Awesome to see it again after all these years.

Maybe my dad didn’t own it he had a flight school and it may have been someone he either worked with there or was a friends of his. I’ll have to ask because I was really young back then like 8 or 9 so I may have just thought it was ours. I did fly in it a bit though.

My dad has lived in Alaska since 1974 and is still there living in Wasilla, He flew for Regal Air flying a beaver on floats for many years. Now he is retired and about to turn 82.

Talked to my dad he did own that plane. Said he bought it for $3,500.00 back in the mid 60s.
