He and Glenn worked on it all day, chasing the missfire. I came back out at 3, surprised that he was still there. They buttoned up the airplane and Andrew took it on a test hop around the field. By that time, it was too late to head towards the next hayfield so Andrew spent another night in the hotel.
Andrew does a postflight on the airplane.

Early last week, I received an interesting message on Facebook, " My great grandfather (Captain Robert Kelso) owned and flew that plan around 1928-1930 and my dad, myself and my brothers are hoping to say hello to her on our way through."
We were able to make that possible Thursday afternoon.
