Default Looking more like an airplane

Lots of things getting done since the plane was moved to the airport last March, including those dreaded spar bolts which are surprisingly easy to get in, but much harder to torque down (the bottom ones). Pulled the plane out today to test the nav antenna that is in the right wing. The Eastern Iowa Airport has VOR/DME 3 miles west of the airport and I was able to tune in and hear the morse code. Many more things to do but still hoping to fly in a couple months.

Default Panel Update

Finally getting around to cutting the panel. Going quite well with a jig saw and circle cutter

Default Get out of the workshop

Mission Windows successfully completed today.
The window frame had to get out so that the fuselage could leave my workshop in the basement. Now it goes to the painter.

Default At the airport (KTTN)

Finally the weather and my tow truck driver cooperated and was able to get the project over to the airport. I sometimes have trouble with google photos displaying images - forgive me if they don't show.

[ed. Sorry Tom, I can't see your images. Looks like you've hosted on Google - check that they are in a 'shared' folder on your end. v/r,dr]
