11th March is Wet Wet Wet.
So headed upto FT Aviation Facility down the south end of Stratford Town.
The restoration of ONE continues.
Ian and I carried on with the cleaning down of the wing & fuse etc.
The wing looking fine after a good wipe down with a super secret wing cleaner.
We also re-arranged the shed a bit to make it easier to access the various components.
For you sharp eyed people yes that is an old Tablet machine on the bench ex NZR. I used to certified to us those back in me Rail days.
The stab and elevator were also given a goo wipe over.
We had the fuse doing Knife edge and that also got a good going over more than a few times.
Gave the JAB a tickle as well.
Came up not to bad still needs some under belly cleaning but nothing to write home about.
The lads were there today finishing the pad and the HUMP is GONE.
The turn around for the Trucks under way.
Looking not to pleasant.
Then this fella appeared must have landed just as I left.
PA-18-150 with really over weight Tyre's. Outa Auckland.
Even the tail wheel was a Fatty.
Mmmmmm Wet Wet Wet.
