While I was asking about the several different fantastic airplanes Aunt Marj owned and flew, I learned she owned a Citabria stunt airplane! How about that? It's a stunningly beautiful and powerful aircraft!
She explained the roots of Citabria's name, "It's airbatic spelled backwards." She went on to describe the rolls and flight maneuvers she pulled over the criss crossing, perfectly straight California farm roads, far below. Marj is modest about her stunt flying days. After she sold her Citabria she acquired several other mouthwatering sky chariots.
When I approach 90, I would like to be in the razor sharp condition that my Aunt Marj is in today. She is an inspiration for me and I hope by sharing these tidbits, my daughters will appreciate her more. It's a bonus that I get to share this with friends, as well as aviation buffs who are Hobby Express customers!
