What a great day; at 08:00 AM I got a telephone call from the trucking company telling me they were going to be at my shop with the wing kit. They said to expect them about 11:00 AM.
My wife & I got up, made breakfast & called some friends to come help us unload the crate.
At 09:10 AM the truck pulled up out front and we unloaded the wing kit. There was no damage so we prceeded to conduct an inventory, and a close up inspection as we dissassembled the shipping crate being careful to prevent damage to the crate so as to reuse it as a frame for building the wings on.
Photo one shows me taking the end of the crate as the driver pushes it out from the front.
Photo two is myself and a friend named Davis helping me lower the crate to the ground.
Photo three is me and Dan the truck driver looking over the crate for any signs of damage. He was very friendly, and was very impressed with the idea that I was building an airplane. He asked if he could stop by and take a look from time to time, of course I said yes. He lives around Harrington so I expect I'll see more of him in the near future. This is how sport aviation is suppoesed to be, fun, educating, and something to share with others who have never experienced it before.
