The other day I realized that there wasn't a Flickr Group dedicated to some of my favorite airplanes. So I created Citabria, Champ, and Decathlon on Flickr (a Yahoo service) as a group dedicated to pictures of the Aeronca, Bellanca, and American Champion tailwheel airplanes.

Of course, I'm a little biased since I own half of a 1969 Citabria 7KCAB (serial #181).

Anyway, if you're an owner, fan, or photographer of these birds, feel free to join the group and invite others :-)

Jeremy you have a typo "1969 Citabira 7KCAB (serial #181)." see Citabira <<

My question might sound silly and hopefully not insulting but how do you fly on a 1969 piece of hardware? Is it that safe? Are airplanes engines/frames so reliable?

Typo fixed, thanks.

Of course it's safe to fly the airplane. A properly maintained airplane can last a very, very long time.

I was wondering how far can go this Citabria 7KCAB plane? I mean how much is the fuel consumption and the tank size capacity?
