After the clean-up the Skycoupe is in a decent shape to be examined by the experts: Tom Malechuck and Jack Phillips. They provided us with a long list of valuable "to do and to not do". New marching orders will soon be concocted based on their input but the good news is that there is nothing wrong with this airplane! (although for the engine we will need to have a closer look inside).
Tom explaining how to "undress" the fabric off the elevator while Kent takes notes
Jack, a Pietenpol builder is comfortable with the wooden wing's ribs and spars
Conclusion: After being forgotten and almost lost to the elements, this Skycoupe could find its destiny, soaring, sooner rather than later...
