Pitts Special S-1C "Lil Stinker" - (scan - donated)

This Pitts S1 "Lil Stinker" is undergoing restoration in Building 10. At the 10/96 open house Mary Feik was there telling people about the plane. She is helping with the restoration, even though she is technically retired. She is one of a very few people left who is expert at the fabric covering methods used on the Pitts. She is truly an inspiration!

Pitts Special one of the finest aerobatic aircraft ever built. "Little Stinker" was the second produced (after prototype, which was wrecked about 2 weeks after first flight).
