*61 Globetrotter, Hettie"

So our hobby is growing by one. We have been casually watching for a small 61and realized that Bambi's were likely out if the budget.

So recently a seemingly original 1961 19 ft Globetrotter was presented here for sale. After an inspection and lots of correspondence we struck an agreement and added Hettie to our Aluminum addiction.

We don't physically have her yet so I was hesitant to post but there's enough money there to secure the deal.

We are super excited, and looking to pick her up over the holiday.

Not a lot of Globies out there so this should be fun.

So in 10 days we're off on our adventure to pick up Hettie from outside of St Louis MO.

Getting a bit excited but still holding back a bit. I'll be bouncing out of my seat by the time we actually get there.

Been doing some more research and there don't seem to be many surviving 61 Globetrotters out there. (That are documented or online) Seems 1964 was a popular year with slightly different floorplans.

A few more pics till then.

Four days till we go east to pick up Hettie. Hard to concentrate but it will pass quickly. Hope she looks as good in person as she does in pictures.

Can't blame you for being anxious, Hettie is a delight!

I think you hit gold . Congrats. Keep us posted on your progress. It's missing a Airforum sticker in the rear window.

Hettie is home. She did fine on her way home but glad to get here. She is quite intact but needs some cleaning, and tlc. We are very thrilled and blessed to have her. She was very easy to park and fit in nicely into two parking spots.

Drove on a ball only 😨 without all the other safety features we're used to. She tracked, followed and stopped fine but fine is not what we're aiming for we'll be glad to get back to very good.

Had to use the ever reliable duct tape for some window corners as the interior levers would not stay closed. Taped up the door in door as the gaskets are all gone and air kept rattling the small door open. And taped up the twist up handles on the front astrodome as it kept rattling open. And of course all extetior hatches, don't want to loose them.

Will get some more photos posted in coming weeks. It is still very hot here to be in a toaster oven.

She is tucked in next to her siblings.
