"Nothing by Chance" - Fun Flights is excited to see this Travel Air also participating in the 2018 American Barnstormers Tour because both the Fun Flights Travel Air and Thomas Leaver's Travel Air shared the same owner back in the 60's - 70's - Spence Nelson who hailed from San Diego and was in Richard Bach's book and documentary "Nothing by Chance"

#NothingByChanceMore on Tour Pilots and their Travel Air biplanes: THOMAS LEAVER - 1929 Travel Air 4000 (England). "I soloed at 16 in Monterey, California and obtained my private, commercial and instrument ratings for single engine land with the anticipation of going into the airlines. My career path however changed dramatically and ultimately overseas, but my passion for aviation remained and when, after a 15 year gap, I was afforded the opportunity to re-engage though through vintage aviation in 1990. That was the beginning of my romance with the Morane Saulnier 230 for the next 25 years; no electrical system, no brakes and no tail wheel (just a skid). Air start, rechargeable from an external source only, but what a fabulous airplane. Growing older, I needed something more user friendly (electrical system, starter, brakes and tailwheel) to look after for the next 25 years and that manifested itself in NC5427, a beautifully restored Travel Air D-4000 by Harry Somers and Jim Ward in 1990. She began life as a model 3000, registered in May 7, 1928 by Walter Beech and delivered to D. C. Warren Co. in San Francisco . . .”

Tom flew with the de Havilland Moth Club on their Vintage Air Tour in 2015 crossing the English channel for the first time and spent time flying in France and the continent. Reading the history of his Travel Air we discovered the same owner (Spencer Nelson) of both Tom’s Travel Air and the Fun Flights Travel Air N9872 also on our tour this summer. Nothing by chance yet again!
