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.



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

Jul 3rd, 2015 - Chuck Hosack CH-750 First Flight!

My Zenith CH 750 received it's airworthiness certificate on June 6, 2015 and the first flight was July 3, 2015 from Birchwood airport.

There were no issues on the first flight other than some minor control tweaks needed to correct a heavy wing.

This project was completed in 830 hours of work including painting with most of the work done in my garage. The engine is a Rotax 912 ULS with a 3-blade Warp Drive prop.
