John Thorp designed the plane so that the wing could be removed in just a few minutes by two or more men. It really is easy to do. You don't really need any drawings. If you want, give me a call and I will explain the simple steps. I live in SC and have been flying my T18 for 38 years. Have a little more than 1400 hours on it.

Disregard! I've got the drawing and will remove the gap covers.

Bill,

I apologize for not responding to your question sooner, but I've been swamped at work and did not look at my post as I should have... The plane is at Peter Prince in Milton, FL at the moment. Bill I remember that you are quite knowledgeable on the building process. I wish you were a lot closer to Milton, but if I remember correctly you are in North central FL.

Anyone that can help me out would be greatly appreciated. The AC is disassembled except for the wing, so that is the last step to trailer it and get it back so I can work on it. I'll get through it somehow...


Thx for all the help guys!


L...

Wish I was still there. The Tigress was at Yellow River for several years.

Thanks Terry, I may take you up on that, as I'm pretty much alone down there for this job.
