Wally's New Project
He's going to need a really big engine to get this one to fly!
But seriously, pictured is Chief Carpenter Wally with our prototype safety starting stand. Thanks to Wally, Alan Coleman, Fred Webb & Peter Harrison for getting this unit completed
As most of you know, the shed has been in the process of being wired. Well, that's now over. The shed is alive. A huge thanks to Peter Harris who has put in enormous effort to get this done. Remember to thank him next time you see him. All this work he's done for free, saving the club HUGE money.
We see a lot on the restorations of WWII era bombers And fighters, but this is something quite unusual…
