    Hey Sam there was a time when one could order a leather name tag with EAA wings. I doubt that they can still be ordered but I gotta ask.

    I doubt that the spinner and those deflectors bolted on the back were channeling much cooling air thru that narrow opening. The Morane appears to have been pretty tightly cowled. Donít think the...
