RV-7 has a new home - BCAC

Terry, Mike, Andy, Joel and Kent were up at the crack of dawn today (10/30/2011) to load up our Club's latest acquisition, an RV-7 project donated by Mr. Andrew Meyers of Apex. The tailfeathers are largely complete and the wings are about 50% complete. All of the parts are now safely stored at the Skunkworks and we'll be discussing future plans with this latest project at upcoming meetings.

The images below are from the last few work sessions.

Nathan McConnell and his father made one last visit to the Skunkworks before Nathan headed for A&P school in Portland, Oregon.

Joel, Andy and Terry put the finishing touches on the undersurface of the left wing.
