Looks like the triplane won't be headed west for a while. When the owner of the airport, who is the purchasers US representative, found out that they were planning on taking the airplane on an open trailer, a severe pissing-match ensued. The result was they unloaded the trailer and left without it.
I've volunteered to take it to California the second half of next month. We're looking at options now, including getting a truck to take it out and drop the truck and rent a car to drive home so I can sight-see. Do you think I ought to take Skyler?
