Great shot of the spartan executive.
Paul Wisgerhof
One of only 36 Spartan Executive 7Ws built. Another 130 or so C-3 models were built by Spartan before it went bust.

Thanks for the correction Jim.

Danville CA doesn't have an airfield, so it's either out of Livermore or Concord (Buchanan) CA.
Love the aircraft. A thing of beauty.

It's a Spartan Model 7W (circa 1938) with a P&W R-985 Series engine. Just beautiful!

That plane is a work of art. I'd frame this pic and put it in a place where everyone could see. Perfect pic!
