Default Kelli Girl - N260KM Status Check

There's a lot happening with my 7A project this month:

My hangar rental got bought out, so we moved from 52F's northwest side to a new rental on the northeast side. My friends at MarcAir Aviation (esp Glenn Harrington) generously offered to tow KELLI GIRL to the new hangar. This was a real motivator, because it's the first time I've seen her from a distance: She really looks like an airplane now.

Seeing the light of day...

Glenn pulls KELLI GIRL out of her old hangar...

A quick hero shot...

On the way to the new hangar...

KELLI GIRL tucked into her new den. My brother-in-law Tony Malley welcomes her home.

In addition, the flaps and ailerons are now mounted...

I may have her ready for Mel's airworthiness blessings come April. Won't be long now!
