Glad to hear your weather is warmer than here! It was 6 degrees last night!! Sure glad the groundhog didn't see his shadow so that means we are going to have an EARLY SPRING!
I've been cutting on the canopy the last couple of days, trying to get the front part down far enough to get the canopy to the lifting rails so I can anchor it. I'm taking my time and going little by little. I should have it pretty well done by next weekend, unless I run into trouble. Trouble is my middle name of course, right?? LOL
Catch you whenever you get tired of all that warm weather and decide to head back home!!
Ray, I am back in the States! I am visiting my daughter in Texas and plan on stopping by the Zenith factory around Wednesday or Thursday next week (18th or 19th). Maybe sometime in the next few weeks we can plan a small trip. I am very excited about being home!
Mike Mossman and I were thinking about getting up your way to visit the Beck Speedster plant. That's 20 miles South of South Bend. Waiting for some better weather. Hope you are getting some stick time. Maybe we can stop by during the Beck visit. Probably be on a Saturday.
Clear Skies, Chuck
Hey Ray, glad you was able to get some stick time in. I know the winds have been really blasting out there most days. I think the Ducks go down to Nappanee for their Christmas dinner if I'm not mistaken. When I first started to learn to fly, I was flying out of Nappanee. The guy that ran the airport there had a 150 I would rent. I eventually had to leave Nappanee because the 150 didn't have a transponder. I was at the point I needed one so we ended up over Goshen. The 152 that sits out over at the Ducks (25608) was one of the planes I would fly....small world. My wife and I went down to Mexico MO about 4 weeks ago and picked up the balance of my plane. I should have everything here now to complete the airframe. I still have a long ways to go. I hope to have it up on its wheels by the end of summer. Keeping my fingers crossed. Later! Larry
