Kris Shipler keeps her late father’s dreams alive in caretaking his stunning plansbuilt Falco F.8L.

For Kris Shipler this Falco is far more than an airplane. It is, 13 years after first flight, still a living embodiment of her father, John Shipler, who constructed it from scratch. And yet this thumbnail sketch is just the beginning of the story, not anywhere near a complete encapsulation. Tucked into a spotless hangar at the Chino, California, airport—why does everything seem to happen at Chino?—this Falco is both flown regularly and maintained to like-new condition by Kris and her husband, Paul, a former auto detailer who obviously knows every trick in the book.
