Renato Balestra EN3

Balestra had no car, but he did have a plane. A 1947 Aeronca.

I drove him out to the airfield where he kept the plane, and he flew

us down to Kitty Hawk. He had me hold down the brakes, while he

cranked the prop over by hand to start her up. Enjoyed the trip.

He had hopes to become a commercial pilot, or bush pilot.

Hope he made it.
