Peter certainly would not have been the first to show up at Osk with a plane that never went anywhere so I too don't know why he didn't unless he was unable to get someone else to pay for the space. Looks like Garmin gave their budget $ to Patey but there really isn't another supplier that he was using as so much of the plane was non aircraft sourced.If he was a PT Barnum, he would have/ should have parked it at Fond du Lac. Makes it close by but hard to see. Drive people crazy.
guess it won't fly twice today. Must have been nasty headwinds to knock his groundspeed down from 280 kts to 120Longest flight yet. Must have been pretty heavy with 3 hours fuel and everything he said he was going to transport. I'll be impressed if it flies twice in a day.
