Many aviators dream of having their very own vintage aircraft, and for Lenny Ohlsson that dream came true when he acquired a WACO Biplane and flew it all over the country.

Below is the image of Paul Poberezny helping to start the WACO in 1958 that Lenny would eventually own.

Lenny still owns the WACO today, it was being annualed when I visited him. He also has a Piper Cub, and his wife owns a Grumman Tiger.
