Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Here's a summary of my three days with the EAA One Week Wonder airplane in central Florida earlier this week.
On Wednesday, we flew by the shortest paved runway (a nice R/C field, just a few hundred feet long) and later that night I had the chance to fly over the longest runway I'd ever seen (NASA's shuttle landing runway at Kennedy Space Center, three miles long!).…Continue

That hangar held within it the 'Spirit Of Building Aircraft', also know as the SOBA. That spirit, the very source of creativity and…Continue

The QSP spring flyi-n is now history - it was great!
We had a big group of Zenith flyers and builders attending this year. Lori & I would like to thank all in attendance.

Kirk from Dynon was able to attend this year and had on display the …Continue
