Default Propeller Party

My good buddy Mark built a show plane. Once in a while during last couple years I visit his hangar to pick his brains. He didn't charge me yet so I kept coming They have very active EAA Chapter and do some incredible things at KPTW.

This time Mark changed his propeller and invited everybody for a party. Weather was not cooperating so I saddled my yellow pony and departed.

To find Mark's place is really easy. You drive two something hours until you see two large chimneys, then turn left and airport is right there.





Today's preferred transportation. Please note RV related plates.





Honestly, I don't feel comfortable anymore to snap pictures left and right. May be I am growing old and start to remember ethics lecture from high school. Anyway after very warm welcome we stepped to Dave's hangar to see his extremely fast progress on RV-12.





No priming???? Please somebody say something about salty environment of PA.

Default Too funny!

Hey vlad ... Thanks for documenting the gathering! Before I get run off of this site I should clarify that clearly a woman was involved in the planning of this event . . . Balloons, printed napkins, table cloths!!!

Anyway EAA1250 meets every Saturday at KPTW. We have an assortment of RV activity as well as a restoration project. All are welcome to visit. Maybe we should plan an RV Fly In lunch next spring.

Vlad - stop by and we will check out the intercom.

Red face Vlad -

Vlad,
The other thing you forgot was paint is scheduled for April 20, 2012. By the way the wings are almost done and working on the light kit this weekend. Bottom line I will be waiting on the next kit to arrive Nov 1. I have a lot of vacation time in Nov and Dec for full time building.


You forgot to mention that you offered to help every weekend to make sure I stay on schedule! Vlad you can take the credit on my build build since you are so generous with your time!

Good seeing you – take care
