OK, so we’re not making progress as fast as I would’ve guessed, mainly because of parts. Just before Thanksgiving we got the last bits in, two leading edge wing cores and the strobe bump-out molded replacement piece. We spent the holiday with friends and family, and took a couple days at French Lick, Indiana. There’s an old resort there with a gorgeous domed hall (the largest up till the building of the Astrodome, and only masonry-based construction), casino, and many other attractions. We went horseback riding and visited the Finkelstein’s (see incident in Otisco) while we were in the area, and they fed us a great meal! But, now we’re back at it, and the wing repair is coming along nicely. The wing cores have been fitted, and the bump-out is nearly ready to be bonded onto the winglet. We might have the wing structure repaired by the end of the weekend, and just have some filling and sanding left there, and then need to hook up the new engine monitor and oil hoses on a sort-of warmish day. Check out the repairs-page.
