So the engine is coming off, and the mount will find its way to the Greater Portland area will Russ will work his welding magic, fix the problem, and add the gussets. And meanwhile, we'll do some FWF clean-up. This has been (and will continue to be) a strong, working airplane!

Looking forward to your visit!
