Interview with Jim Clark & ’39 Waco EGCH • 26Aug10
Yesterday I had the excellent opportunity to meet with Jim Clark of Junction City, Kansas and interview him about his exquisitely restored 1939 Waco EGCH “Custom Cabin”. Jim and his airplane are the third owner/airplane of the next movie I am doing which I hope to have completed by the first of November. This movie is about Classic and Antique Airplanes. All 6 of these pictures are “screen grabs” from my raw footage.
Here we see the shining masterpiece in motion as it emerges from its hangar.
We did the interview and “walk-around” of the aircraft against the rolling hills that rim Freeman Field.
Besides the exquisite attention to detail shown in the restoration of the Civil Aeronautics Authority logo, I like the fact that this shot shows you care Jim has taken to keep the fabric waxed and shined. His reflection is like in a glass mirror.
If you want to learn what a sesquiplane is you will have to wait for my movie or look it up yourself. HINT: It has to do with the wings.
Here the Waco is in its natural element.
I’ll keep you posted as this new movie project progresses
