I had a very welcome appearance from Greg today. He has been busy with trips and such that has kept him from the Garaggio when I have been around, and I have been working when he has been around. It was nice to have someone in the shop today, not only for the increased productivity,Continue reading “Greg and I”
When I flew Beech 1900D’s for Skyway Airlines out of Milwaukee, we had a captain that was board by the time we had the gear in the wells. Probably because he had about 10,000 hours flying the ‘Beech Airliner’ around Wisconsin and da U. P. of Michigan. He had literally been there and done thatContinue reading “Are we there yet?”
Today was my travel day back to work. But I woke up early enough to sand out the primer on the cowl and the epoxy wipe on the canard. Nothing new here. Have to add some spot putty then prime again.

I finished the strake to longeron intersections and spent quite a bit of time with the spot putty,Continue reading “Go-on-git! Ugly Betty is no longer welcome here.”
I decided to take the later flight back to training today so that I could get just one more thing done on the airplane. I was able to get the interior and canopy rail bottoms slathered in micro. It will get sanded out when I get home, hopefully with a new type rating.
Well, it has been a while since I have posted on my blog. Rest assured that there have been things happening in the Garaggio for the last month and a half, I just haven’t kept up with the blog. So the textual detail will be somewhat sparse, but in a few posts I would likeContinue reading “Its been a while…”
