One last flight...for a while

This weekend I got to fly with Travis on Saturday.  We actually headed toward Friday Harbor but the weather wasn't so good so we flew on around Seattle and landed at Bremerton to have some dinner.  I guess I should say Travis flew us around.  He did his first take-off, flew the entire trip, and then did his first landing!!

We got back to Puyallup just before legal dark so I fueled up the airplane, did 3 takeoffs and landings at night, and then Travis jumped back in so we could do some night flying.  It was a gorgeous night for flying!

Today I took one more flight with Harry and Jeff up to Arlington for breakfast.  I say one more flight because when I got back to Puyallup I took the fuel servo, flow divider, and prop off of the airplane.  The fuel servo and flow divider are getting shipped to AirFlow Performance for overhaul and inspection.  The prop came home with me so I can do some cleanup and painting of the back side.  I also brought home the plenum so I could finish the painting that I didn't do last spring.

I did get some work done on the 10 as well.  No pictures because it was just deburring, scuffing, cleaning and priming.  I should be able to start assembling the elevators this week.

Took this picture after Travis and I put the airplane away for the night on Saturday.
Nice fog in the valley.

Neat silhouette of Jeff against the rising sun.

Turning final for Arlington.  If you look close you will see Jeff just crossing the threshold.

Took this picture for reference but this is where the flow divider is suppose to sit.
