11/29/2004. Remarks by William Iorg:
"I was certainly surprised to see Delmar 'Lou' Longmire's SP-2,
N12DL. I grew up in Corrales, New Mexico, USA and watched Lou's
various projects for many years. Lou had many interesting airplanes
including a Culver Cadet that was very nice. I was just graduation
High School and well remember seeing 12DL on the ramp at 7-Bar
airport, Albuquerque, New Mexico .
When I returned from the Army several years later and began
flying I met and became good friends with Lou. About 1974 I purchased
the follow up to the SP-2 the SP-3, N33DL. Lou always considered the
SP-3 to be a loose copy of Art Chesters "Jeep." I flew this
wonderful aircraft for too few hours before an engine failure on
take-off destroyed it at 7-Bar."
