 To Whom It May Concern:

My son, Brandon Roycroft, was able to locate this Cessna (N427JG)via the Internet. This plane first belonged to my father, Joseph H. Glass. He owned it when we lived in Elk Grove, Illinois. He kept it in a hanger at DuPage Airport. I can remember riding in this plane on Sunday afternoons up to Lake Lawn Lodge. This plane has always been special to our family. My son, who is now 13 years old, would one day like to buy the plane back to keep it in our family. If you should ever decide to sell it, please contact us first. The call letters on the plane stand for my father's birthday-the month number (4) and the year he was born, 1927. The JG came from his initials-Joseph Glass. He would jokingly say,"N427 Jolly Green Giant" when getting clearance to take off by the tower. I hope you are enjoying the plane. It means so much to have found it again on Christmas day-especially since my father has since passed on. Thank you, and please keep in touch. My son's e-mail is BrandonRoycroft93me@yahoo.com.

 It's been so many years that if my father told me the story about the plane, I had forgotten it. My father and uncles purchased this aircraft sometime in the late 1970's or early 1980's. The plane I recall may have had a brown stripe and a red stripe instead of the double red stripes. It was parked at Palwaukee Airport. The radios were upgraded and a sort of flight computer added. My father, my sister and I used it to vacation in Arkansas and Colorado. It flew to Hilton Head Island and Las Vegas as well. Eventually my uncle got full ownership of it and flew a number of times from Palwaukee to the east coast of Florida. Sure had to be a hard-working little plane.
