    Well Tom it took a while but great to see you, your father and sons, and of course your Taylorcraft in Vintage Aircraft this month. Great article and a lot to be proud of.

    Thanks Scott. Yep, it took them a while. Just to be clear this is my fathers airplane. All three generations fly and take care of it.

      When we used to have the Taylorcraft gathering at the Oshkosh forum tents (now buildings) every year, I saw these kids grow from one year to the next. Now Nick is doing these wonderful calendars. Both brothers are flying. It's great to see that the Baker future is continuing the family tradition!

              Neat article! Here is a link to the online version at EAA:
              The tradition of naming sons after their fathers often causes confusion. In addition, it makes it difficult to tell the story of a given Taylorcraft when both Tom Jr. and Tom Sr. have owned several…

                "The tradition of naming sons after their fathers often causes confusion..."

                Indeed. This seems to me to be a strangely American tradition, although it may originate from European immigrants (but certainly not from English ones). There is only one country that continues do do this to my knowledge, and that's the USA.
                In England, second names are often after parents or grandparents first names.

                I am named Robert.
                My father is named Edmund. We both have the same second name, after my paternal grandfather's second name.

                  Dad's middle name is Tom, and his first name is Lowell. My first name is Tom, with a middle name of David. The problem is friends and family never called dad by his first name. I have the unofficial title of Jr.
                  I did carry on the tradition, my oldest son Ben's middle name is Thomas. He goes by Ben so there is no confusion.
