Cut a big hole in the wing. We’re waiting on parts for a couple of SB’s anyway, figured it was as good a time as any to put in the landing light. It’s nerve wracking to chop big holes in a perfectly good wing.

Default Winter Build

Well its winter time, everyone is building!
Me, I made a run for firewall forward wiring. That stuff is expensive, but only do it once. Gotta build while the beaches are closed/ cold!

I feel like I am living in a movie; building a plane so that one day, I can escape the madness.

Did my flight review with instructor Mary. Departed KLHM > KMHR > KSAC > KSMF > KLHM. Been awhile since I’ve carried a passenger. The dual instructions was awesome.

Thanks for sharing. I didn't know Yeti but I flew in his airplane with Rifle once and my dad was a crew chief at his A-10 unit.
