Flying the Lizzie

Call it procrastinating, call it playing, call it whatever you like….. but I am having so much fun with this WORK of arranging out-of-the-way landing zones for the Lysander, that I have trouble getting work done. And still the ultralights to pack, Tongass Manual to finish, tons of work for…

See why I am happy !?

  And we’re only halfway done I think…. after 18 months! But she flies, albeit with a borrowed flight model. I don’t know if I’ll attempt another aircraft after this one. Man, what an ordeal! But hopefully we’ll get her to be what I had in mind all along and…
