Visit to Jack Tiffany's to see the Autogyro.

We were in Columbus, OH for a couple days, so I had the idea to go see Jack and Kate Tiffany in New Berlin to see how they were coming on their extremely rare Pitcairn PA-18 Autogyro.
A short drive over and we were at Jack's hangar. He told us the history of the aircraft and how it survived. Jack showed us the rotor blades which he was in the process of recovering after their second boo-boo. A short tour around his projects and we got out of his hair.
