    Harris 1 Geodetic

    Many moons ago a fella at our airport showed up with a really cute little yellow biplane called the Harris 1. I had a chance to buy it for 5k but did not. One of my mechanics bought it and promptly ground looped it after that I lost track of it because he gave the airframe away and kept the...

    The pointless destruction goes on.

    For those that have looked at my web site know I've been involved in the resurrection of a Beech Starship or two. The pointless destruction of Starships started awhile ago when Raytheon bought Beech. They have had it in for this aircraft all along. They went to Rutan's facility and mindlessly...

    Fly American

    If you have to fly commercial then Fly American Airlines for they are still doing all their maintenance right here in the USA. Of course they are being punished for this by being at the door step of the FAA. It's soo much easier to walk across the street than too fly to South America. I often...

    Fun Police

    A controller at JFK brought his child to work and let the child talk on the radio and give clearances. The media somehow got a hold of this and now he and the supervisor are suspended. The child had rehearsed this stuff with the dad and sounded very professional and the pilots loved it. The...

    My project will be skinned with .020 T3 attaching to .020 T3 ribs. I have been agonizing over the dimpling process because of the limited flange width of the rib caps. I was thinking of just using button heads. I have done considerable work on aircraft that had back shot rivets and shaved heads...
