The airplane that Brad Johnson flies is a Bellanca Super Decathlon with a "wing and a prayer" paint job. After the movie it was owned by the west coast Bellanca distributor and recovered and repainted to original yellow, white and blue with starburst on wings and tail. It was featured on the cover and inside of Plane and Pilot December 1998. It now flys out of Tucson, Arizona regularly. How do I know? I fly it regularly for fun!

Denny Lynch (Pilot, picture plane) passed away in Billings December 30, 2005 at the age of 70 of a heart attack. He was buried in Billings January 4, 2006. Denny was married to my sister Loretta. She passed away July 30, 2000 at the age of 61 with liver cancer. By the way the two 26's are parked near the airport in Billings. I am not sure what will happen to them.
