Hangar Spying

November 19, 2007

By accident, the day I came to the airport to "Spy" your (Harvard Holmes's) hangar, it turned out that Ray Nilson was meeting at his hangar with Bill Black for some serious business, as well. They were mounting Ray's Eggenfellner engine to the airframe. There are a couple of pictures of other parts of the airplane which were "lying about"- the canopy, cradled wings and horizontal stabilizer, etc. But the serious business was getting the engine moved from the sling to the firewall. Ahhh! Progress.....
