I know, I know..... you've seen this airplane many times over the last four years or so. Fact is, it just left my rented hangar space a week or two ago!! I've been thinking of selling for a while now, had it advertised a few places, had a few interested parties...... now it's gone.
Daniel Reis, from the Owen area, decided he liked it and he showed up with cash, a tool box and a trailer. We started dismantling the aircraft so he could take it home.
One wing off. Luckily Al's 182 Cessna was gone for the day and we had the whole hangar to spread things out.
There were a bunch of air tubes and such to disconnect before we could take off the left wing.
It was starting to look a little weird by the time we got the second wing off.
One wing laying on the ground, trailer waiting on the tarmac....
Dan and his wife, Carmine, and Peggy and I were able to get the plane onto the trailer. We screwed pieces of board to the trailer deck to keep the wheels from being able to roll, put on a bunch of ratchet tie down straps and that's that.
We loaded the wings and struts on the trailer, tied it all down and off they went........
End of story.
