Kinner B-2 Sportwing

Original photo caption: "Restored 1935 Kinner B-2 Sportwing -- Photo Courtesy of Myron Rupprecht."

02/06/2003. Remarks by Roger Sword: "This is a photo of an antique restored bya friend of mine way back when I lived in California, USA. I think he restored it about the late 1970s. His name was Myron Rupprecht and the aircraft is a 1935 Kinner B-2 Sportwing. The unique thing about this plane is that it's a side-by-side open cockpit. Not many were built. Myron didn't keep it very long after restoration and a few airshows. He went on to restore a Gypsy Moth. Myron lost his life in the crash of his Varieze in the late 1980s while giving a ride to a friend. This photo is (from) the front cover on an old issue of Trade-A-Plane."
