Keep the Skinny Birds Flying Safely
Just a couple words . I Finally got my "new" Porterfield home from the storage center after about 8 months. I live on an airstrip in Florida 72FL , that i purchased a couple years ago . It's been a journey getting it like I wanted , but I'm finally ready to start building again. As some of you know , this is my second skinny bird. My first n25563 was in an accident after I sold her and now lives with Dave Brown in Ohio. (Its for sale as a project) A few pictures are attached to show what I am starting with and now the fun begins. If anyone knows where I could find a set of serviceable gear, I'd like to know. The fuselage is pretty tweaked, but repairable. (i'd buy one of those too if the price were right). The project came with 2 sets of wings, one on the plane , one off. The former long time owner , James Gooding, has been an inspiration with his wealth of knowledge on this aircraft. I'll post more pictures as the project progresses. Keep them flying folks .
