Papa’s local EAA Chapter sponsored a Fly-In at the Woodruff Lake Airport. Although it’s not quite flying yet, Papa brought his partially-assembled homebuilt plane.
Papa bought the kit when Christian was just a baby. He and Terry and now our children have been working together to build it.
Building a kit-plane is a looooonnnggg and tedious process.
I’ve been confused about the name of this beast they’re building. Apparently, it’s a Murphy Super Rebel, which is similar to the Murphy Moose. Here is a photograph of someone else’s completed Super Rebel.
A nearly-completed wing resides in our basement, and I think there are other completed portions in Papa’s hangar that were not safely transportable.
Thousands of rivets.
God blessed us with spectacular weather for the fly-in.
Rebecca closed the tail section door in preparation for hauling the fuselage back home.
Such an unexpected sight on the road!
By the way, I captured photos of other airplanes at the fly-in also, but saved them for separate blogposts as this one was already full of the Super Rebel. Stay tuned.
