Second Porterfield now registered in Oz!

I made an error advising the rego I had reserved. It is VH-POF which was added to the register today. So now we can have "papa oscar foxtrot" calling. I have not found any handling notes or Flight Manual with the LP-65. Is anyone able to advise the status of such documents please. Remember, "its always tomorrow in Australia". Regards, Rob.

N37733 arrives in Australia.

Some hold up to get through customs, where the container was x-rayed, and quarantine looking for all sorts of bugs trying to escape from the US. Amazingly, nothing was damaged in the slightest during the long voyage. Job now is to get the aeroplane assembled and finalise the paperwork to get full registration…
