Sightings: Doug Gardner's Great Lakes 2T-1A at St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
Doug Gardner flew his Great Lakes Sport Trainer 2T-1A to St. Louis Downtown Airport recently during the EAA 64 Young Eagles rally for local Boy Scouts.  Based at local Creve Coeur Airport in St. Louis County, the aircraft is a favorite at fly-ins.  After a brief stopover, the Sport Trainer was quickly in the air - the 200hp Ranger engine giving the aircraft crisp performance.  We hope to see Doug and his Great Lakes more this summer, perhaps at the Waco Club Fly-In June 7-10.  Here are some views of Doug and the aircraft:
