Prepping for the Waco Fly-In.
With the American Waco Club Fly-In coming up a week from Thursday, Glenn shifted gears from working on the Standard to prepping the Curtiss Canuck and De Havilland Dh-4 Mailplane for their first flights this year. After taking the newly-cleaned Zenith back to the hangar, he brought the Canuck down to his hangar for it's annual. I worked on cleaning the Canuck's wings of all the dust they accumulated over the winter (a bunch!) Plan on running the engine tomorrow and if all is well, giving the airplane a short test flight. Then we'll bring the Dh-4 down to the hangar. I got a stabilizer covered on the Cub so I'm moving along slowly and surely.
