I did post a comment on ForeFlight and I noticed someone else added a follow on comment. Iíve started repair/replacement work on my nose wheel skirt. Not being the original builder or having build experience Iím finding the process both challenging and time consuming - but also a little enjoyable.
I donít know the name of the field owner who called me but he was definitely initially rude and only got worse after I hung up on him. He even called me back three times to finish his comments.
I agree the on field restaurant makes Stearman a nice ď$100 hamburgerĒ destination but as I previously said the lack of adequate safe parking also ruins the experience when something happens. I was fortunate that it wasnít worse. If Iíd fallen into the hole a couple of more inches it would have resulted in a prop strike - a really expensive problem.
Just be careful there. The owner only wants your money and doesnít care about airport parking. Are you back from the Mideast?
