This Falco has been sold to Mike Spruce who lives on the West coast of the South island of New Zealand.



Dear Alfred,

The last time I wrote to you was when my parents died in their Falco. A sad time for a lot of people.

Today I write to you on a much happier note: I have bought a Falco, a Sequoia Falco!!! It is the one that Syd Jensen built in Kerikeri, New Zealand, many years ago.

I picked it up, together with George Richards, on Monday, and after a fantastic flight that took us from the bottom of the South Island of New Zealand all the way to Auckland. ZK-TBD is now parked in the very same hangar where ERNA was parked!

I am still excited about the whole thing: a life long dream has come true. As you know I was born in a Falco (I sort of get attracted to them -- I guess it is called 'imprinting'?), and I still remember when you came to Florence to meet my father and fly ERNA! I remember you having dinner at our place! And then the airport the next day, when Dad took you for a flight on his 'rocket.' Good memories, great memories!

I can only thank you for all that you have done for Falcos, and for believing in it all the way. It is because of this that today I can have a Falco. I have made my dream a reality!

Now I have a lot of work to do to make TBD fly faster and faster! I guess it runs in the family! More photos will come soon!
