The Aeronca Champ
Well Shucks! I guess I should have done some research before I thought the above pictures were weird My bad.......
In 1957, Champion brought out the 7FC, a design sharing many parts, including the engine, with their version of the 7EC. The most significant difference in the 7FC was its tricycle landing gear arrangement. The main gear and the nose gear utilized oleo struts, 472 built.
