LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation’s Chairman Emeritus Robert Duncan and his wife, Karen, surround themselves with the things they’re passionate about: aviation and art. So, when Duncan Aviation acquired a new Citation M2, they wanted the jet’s paint scheme to reflect the brush strokes of an abstract artist. They also simultaneously took the term “green plane” to another level.
Pilots often have two dreams: One is to find a derelict airplane in a barn and restore it to an airworthy showpiece; the other is to find someone who shares their passion for aviation.
Paul and Sandy Mercandetti from Knoxville, Tenn., are lucky enough to have had both dreams come true. The couple flies around the country in a 1946 GC1-B Globe Swift model 1-A that Paul found in a shed years ago.
