At least three of our members here, have owned one of these.

Long ago,and far away, I was in a barn out in Rockford, Michigan, talking to a farmer and looked up to spot a Bensen in the rafters. I bought it on the spot ,cheap, and hauled it home atop our Subaru.

Wife, although a bit taken back when I came in the driveway, said she would fly it if I went first. :D
