Aeronca 65 vs 11AC
The following 'discussion' was moved away from the article itself
The photo to the right is incorrect - it is of a post-war Aeronca 11AC Chief.
Actually whilst the nosebowl and cowling are from a post-war 11AC Chief, the triangular jury struts, prominent aileron horns and external cables, small cabin d-windows and the windscreen being higher than the wingroots all confirm that the airframe N29433 is indeed a pre-war Chief.
The last few months of production of the 1941 65-CA differed from earlier pre-war 65-CA models in that the nosebowl and cowling had advanced to the "smooth" 2 piece set (shown here), as opposed to the earlier 3 piece set which is readily identified with this model. It presaged the post-war 11AC look.
