Oldfield Buddy Baby Lakes


The Baby Great Lakes (one place) and Buddy Great Lakes (two place) aircraft are well proven designs which are easy to construct and fly, provide classic good looks, and are aerobatic. Construction is of wood and steel tubing and plans are well presented for the first time builder.

Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Company acquired all rights to these designs in May 1996 and now offers packs, plans, raw materials kits, and pre-fabricated kits for these aircraft.

My Dad was great friends with Walt Redfern. We owned one of the Great Lakes that he built (red and white). I even got sick in it while doing loops over Henley.
