N12066 was also owned by I.N. Burchinal in the early 70's and was used to
give dual instruction to pilots. It had basic controls in the rear cockpit.
I got a ride in it back then and it had undergone a couple of different
color schemes. The last time I saw it was in a hangar in Paris, Texas after
it had an engine failure.

I have fond memories of this old bird. In 1972-73 I worked for Jr. Burchinal and went to school with his son Sam. I remembered the N number on the plane and looked it up, I was surprised to find it but very pleased. Jr had this plain and is the one who painted it the yellow color and when he sold it , the paint was stripped off and the plane was buffed out to the chrome finish.
