Bill Austin gets a Rawdon T1!

Bill Austin returned this week with his recently acquired Rawdon T1 from North Perry Airport in Miami.

The airplane had been built as a sprayer and owned by a banner-towing operation. The airplane hasn't flown in years but is complete having set inside a hanger the entire time. It's serial number 31 out of the 36 built.

This will make the second Rawdon at our field, the other being Phil and Terry Chastains. Their father, Jack Chastain, formerly worked for Herb Rawdon and served as Test Pilot pilot for the T1 series.
