The Blanik is on the field (not yet assembled). Tim, Andy, Christopher and Charlie have been working on its undercarriage. After a great deal of struggle with stuck bolts in inaccessible places, they have succeeded in removing both the wheel and the oleo strut. We have a new tire and we're awaiting shipment of the strut rebuild kit from Blanik America.

In the meantime, the golf cart has been put back on the road, and the L-19 tailwheel has been overhauled. Also, Andy has been squinting at the 304 trailer with the idea of replacing the brake actuator and coupler.

There are yet more pre-season projects. Contact Andy to volunteer. Let's be ready to go on Assembly Day (corrected date: April 10).
