They said there were 2 in the right seat, so one had to be a kid, the only 3 seat Coupe was the G model, and it was limited to a 75lb kid in the baggage area.
I have never seen a photo of the 3rd seat, anyone have photos ?

Very weird and sad! The owner of the airplane is a long time EOC member. I'm trying to visualize how to get three in an airplane. I suspect the third person was a child.

November 7, 2020, Ardmore, Okla.Ercoupe 415-CAt about 0805 Central time, the airplane was substantially damaged when collided with terrain after the aileron controls reportedly jammed. The commercial pilot sustained serious injuries and the two passengers sustained minor injuries. Visual conditions prevailed for the sightseeing flight.As the airplane flew over a neighborhood, the pilot executed a left bank. One passenger later reported the pilot stated, “this is bad,” and was unable to control the ailerons and return the airplane to level flight. The pilot attempted to move the control yoke multiple times, to no avail. The pilot then attempted to land in an open field but the airplane impacted a tree and came to rest inverted. The NTSB noted that the airplane manufacturer’s documentation states it seats two.
