Rudder and HT Fairings Installed

Not my greatest master piece, but it will keep some of the wind deflecting better.

Hey John,

I just noticed your the guy who, unknowingly of course, snatched the N number I wanted. It's funny I was at a friends house and we were looking to see what was available and typed it in and it said "available". So about a week or so later I went to reserve it and it was gone. ): So instead of going with my initials I went with my other favorite N750YT "Yankee Tango" being I'm from MI it fits. (:

Hello John,

good idea starting a friend group of Viking 750 builders.  Don't recall, do you have the Viking 130 or 110?

Hi John,
I believe there are several 750's flying Corvairs. But who they are, I don't know?
I did work with one guy who was building one, I might be able to put you in touch with him? I'd have to look up his info.?
