    It was so thrilling to see Marvin K. Hand’s (my father) Hanriot in flight. 5 years ago my sone and I went to visit the plane at Hendon and were sad to hear it had been traded. However it is my hope to visit your WWI museum in Blenheim and to see the Hanriot in flight. I remember my father flying the plane in Northern California for the cover article in Airplane Magazine in the early 70s. He spent several years rebuilding the Hanriot in the basement of my Grandmother’s house in San Francisco. My sister and I would help sand small wooden parts for the wing span.
