Hours: 6

Airport day has finally arrived! I roped the fuselage to my car and with the help of my neighbor we towed it up to the court. I found a local car transportation company that was willing to transport my fuselage to the airport. They arrived on time and loaded and secured the fuselage. We took back roads for the 24 mile drive to the airport.

Here we are in the hanger. Unfortunately, about 3/4ths of the way to the airport a car passed us going the opposite direction at a high speed and the resulting gust blew open the canopy and damaged the canopy frame and hinges. I hadn't completely latched the canopy and the gust was enough to pop it up.
