After months of work refurbishing instrument panel, reconfiguring flaps system, straightening gear and complete engine overhaul, airplane back in the air three weeks ago. If weather cooperates a little more, we can get a few more hours before venturing away from home plate. Hope to see some of you in Lakeland or Sedona.

Steve's post reminded me that I was going to praise Don also. I'm proud of you for getting your beautiful bird flying again and gettin' back on the horse. Great job, Don!

Thanks y'all. Sure felt good getting it back in the air. Need to put a few more hours for engine break-in after overhaul and looking forward to some trips. I'll need to load some picture back in the album and got a little rusty at it. Will try it again.

At the moment, trying to finish up on Jerry Sharps' wing so he too can get back in the air. Should be done with them this week and he can come get them and re-rig his airplane and new W & B for more fuel load. He wanted wet wings so he wouldn't get stuck somewhere with no fuel.
