I am building a VANS RV-4 aircraft. If your not involved in homebuilt aircraft it wont be too interesting, but if you are a part of that elite group it just might be. My intention is to include ONLY the interesting details, so the rate of change will be quite slow!

Today the wings went on

Today the wings went on. At 11am the wings were in the cradle and my friend, also an ex glider pilot, arrived. By 12:15 both wings were on, 12 bolts installed, and we were wondering what all the fuss was about. (I mention ex glider/soaring pilot because we both have experience of putting wings on each time before we fly! I think this experience simplifies the task.)
There are a few more pictures here .

O-320 from Aerosport Power

Rudolph finally made it to North Yorkshire today! A bit late, and looking tired. (He, aka BAX Global, has been on the road for a month with this 'air' shipment.)
If you want to see how my new O-320-D1A is packed, click on Firewall forward, 3 Jan '07 entry.
The crate appears to me to be somewhat bigger than necessary, but the contents are undamaged so I am happy. Perhaps O-540 use the same packaging.

For now it is snuggling up to the central heating boiler.

Sue and Brad at Aerosport Power have been as nice as anyone to deal with.
