Wow! That was quite a trip.
It's a beautiful looking airplane.

Best of luck with your phase 1. Now the fun begins.

Very neat!! Was the prop windmilling during the move? Every single picture shows it in a different position.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the comments.

I plan to use that car ferry for all my over water crossings :-)

Lots of things to do now to prepare for the issue of the initial CofA

The prop did move a little, about 180 degrees for the entire trip.

We were driving fairly slowly 90kmph so there was just enough air on occasions to move it ever so slightly.

Cheers
Eddie

Your trailer looks a lot like the one I have for my Europa.

Going flying on the weekend takes on a new meaning when you have to drive 1.5 hours each way.

Crazy, but if you feel the need then what choice do you have.

Cheers
Eddie
