|I'm saddened to report that we lost our friends Tom and Elaine Huf on Labor Day, 2013, when their 1944 Cessna T-50 Bobcat went down in a thunderstorm near PS50, their home strip in Harford Township. The Hufs were familiar faces at Lock Haven's annual Sentimental Journey fly-in, where they frequently displayed their "Bamboo Bomber", Elaine's pink 1947 Aeronca L-16A, or their 1941 Stinson 10A.|
|In addition to those beautiful antique airplanes, Tom and Elaine also flew gliders and seaplanes. They were on their way home to Kingsley, PA from Blakesburg, IA, where they had just attended an Antique Aircraft Association gathering, when the accident occurred.|
|Perhaps the most exotic (and certainly the most recognizable) of the Huf's planes is the experimental "Yellow Rat," which Tom built 40 years ago, and brought to Sentimental Journey every year. They are seen here at our July, 2013 fly-in.|
If you can drive, you can fly!
