Although Rhinehart-Rose Parrakeet S/N 508 was not the last serial number produced by Rhinehart-Rose Manufacturing, Inc.,  it was the last one delivered.  S/N 509, NC846V was delivered in 1977.  Pete Ettinger, a long time flying buddy of Doug Rhinehart's, made the trip to Farmington to take NC14884 up for it's official certification test flight in 1978.

Blakesburg was wonderful this year, even though some folks may not have come because of the heavy flooding around Ottumwa.
I will send you the pictures I took at the Fly-In, many of them of Jack Greiner's rebuild of Doc Lindquist's Parrakeet. (see above Left & right)
Regards, Hawkeye
