Nov 24th, 2015 - Quickie Deconstruction

At the November Chapter Meeting we deconstructed the Quickie that was donated to the Chapter. Fairly quickly we started on the canopy, engine and propeller. Quickie

With better access to the cockpit, we started on removing the instrument panel. Easy non-critical wires such as wing tip lights were cut. Didn't cut the radio antenna that we couldn't easily disconnect from the radio. Disconnected and fed the EGT leads through the firewall. Disconnected and pulled the battery and starter cables. Pulled engine controls. Quickie

There was still some oil in the engine. Drained the oil, and we had to unscrew the plug for the oil pressure gauge to feed it back through the firewall to uninstall the oil pressure gauge so we could put it back on the engine to plug the hole without cutting the oil pressure line.

Fortunately there was a hoist in the hangar only about six feet away. We picked up the plane and moved it to the hoist to support the engine while we disconnected everything. Quickie

At the end, the Revmaster engine was upright resting on it's radiator on top of a milk crate. There was enough clearance for the exhaust pipe.

Oct 9th, 2015 - RV 10 Kit Donation

The chapter is fortunate to receive as a donation a RV10 Empennage and a RV10 Quickbuild Wing kit. Chapter members will be retrieving the kits Saturday October 10. Members are invited to help transport this generous donation from Hillside to Ed Whites hangar at Birchwood. Please call John Davis 3508758 for details and we need a flat bed truck to accomplish the move. If anyone has access to a truck please call John.

Oct 6th, 2015 - Bear Valley Drop-In

On Tuesday, October 6th, a not so Super Cub got dropped into Bear Valley. My neighbor took these photos.

The plane was put on the ground near the intersection of Clark's Road and Heights Hill. The left main gear and the fuselage were hurt bad. It looks like the left rear wing strut is bent, along with the left elevator tip. The Cargo Pod was damaged, but I don't know if it was during the bad landing, or when the helicopter put it down.

Isn't it against the regs to cover up the registration of a registered airplane? Anyone know which doctor or dentist had a ton of money for a brand new Super Cub, but didn't know how to land it? The more I look at the covered up registration, the more I want to announce who it belonged to.

Sep 19th, 2015 - Quickie Move

The Quickie that was donated to the Chapter had been hanging from the ceiling of a garage for over 10 years. The first trick was to get it down to the floor. Quickie

The white wings blend into the background. The original design was a tail dragger. The lower front wing had drooped wingtips with tiny wheels mounted in the wingtips. This plane was converted to tricycle gear. The upper rear wing is just behind the cockpit. Quickie

Quickie The wings are not easily removable, but the tail is. We had to get a long trailer and put the plane sideways to transport it to Birchwood.

Quickie

Quickie

The tail of the plane is upright behind the plane. One of the more unusual aspects of this design is that the tail does not have any horizontal aerodynamic surfaces. Quickie

Thanks to Bernie Willis and George Dorman for the pictures.

This is a photo of the POTUS flight headed to Seward, and the best telephoto picture of a V-22 Osprey that I could get from the deck of my house in Bear Valley. This was the first time I've seen an Osprey in the wild... Walter
