This is the last section of the black painting needed on the underside of the plane.
And now it's done!
This completes the black painting of the entire underside of the Boxcar. Next Spring we will work up on the roof and wing tops to complete this part of the project.
We had the Boxcar all dressed up for this Fall's Chicken and Corn Roast. She looked good in the beautiful weather we had.
The lift has been parked in the back of the main hangar where it will spend the winter. More electrical work has been completed and it runs pretty good, although it might be in need of a new battery next year.
Crew member Richard Curtis finished a display on the armed C119 aircraft used in the Vietnam war. The AC-119G Shadow and AC-119K Stinger gunships were used to support ground troops. The display is currently in the Admin building along with our other displays for the Winter. Stop in and take a look at the detailed information Richard collected.
Ollie borrowed the John Deere tractor so we could store our picnic tables for the winter.
Paul Lazzara stopped by to lend a hand.
Ray Ingram also helped, and the four of us were able to easily park the tables inside the plane.
These are two of the three tables we stored. We also cleaned up the inside of the plane and moved the paint and supplies to our corner of the paint room for winter. One of the park benches we have is in the 1941 hangar for repairs and the other is sitting outside the Admin building. It will eventually be brought in as well.
So that's it for this year. Paul made the last "jump" before the clam shell doors were closed up.
