Beautiful child Jer. It is a great thing that you took custody when you did and then looked after her and moulded her, allowing her to blossom in her new home.

What happened to N1583? (aka Mockingbird)
Looks like it has been deregistered.

I rebuilt it in the '90's and wondering what happened.
Thanks.

Default The Mockingbird

Hey Bruce, I sold her in 2015 to Joe Cannizaro, the chief of air Ops for Donald Trump. He did some nice upgrades to her and I posted pictures here. Unfortunately, Joe perished in a Globe Swift he had purchased in Pineville, La. I really don't know weather his wife de-registered it or exactly what happened.

Thanks Jerry for the update.
Would be a shame if the family deregistered N1583 with the plan to sell as parts to avoid a perceived 'homebuilt liability' for the estate.

I agree that it would be a shame if this airplane is "lost". For many years, once in a while I contemplate trying to buy it. Now that I work at Van's, the idea is even more appealing. I might put a little bit of effort into tracking down N1583.

Jerry; Any leads would be appreciated, e.g. if you know anyone who knew Joe, if you have his address, anything like that.

Wish me luck...

Edit: I was able to find addresses associated with Joe's wife and a handful of other relatives in the town where he lived. Now, I will write an extremely carefully worded letter...
