Dan Mersel submitted this photo and note: "This 1940 model B75L Funk, N24170, which has now been owned for two years, had been previously restored on the West Coast. The original plan was to fly it to its new home at Sawyer County Airport (KHYR) in Hayward, Wisconsin. Because of its limited range, resulting from a fuel tank with only 13 gallons of useable capacity, and due to the higher terrain that the flight would have traversed, it was instead disassembled and transported by truck to KHYR. During its restoration, the engine, which was a 75-hp Lycoming G0-145, was upgraded to a Continental C85."

Harry Fenton submitted this photo and note: "Our white Champ resting at Bob Hilbert's airstrip near Marengo, Illinois, after a day of skiplane flying. Some of the best flying of the year is during the middle of the winter with the plane on skis. Landing on frozen lakes and open fields next to farm homes are off-airport fun that can only be experienced during the winter. Despite the cold, if the sun is out, the radiant glow of the sun makes for some 'warm' winter days that only northern people understand."
I felt a certain amount of sadness when I learned that this great airplane that has been an enormous part our aviation history will no longer be manufactured. Bombardier has decided to pull the plug on the Learjet. As a former Learjet pilot, I feel a certain amount of pride knowing I am, in a way, part of that history.
