build009.jpgChapter 25 Secretary Craig Nelson has been working on his Kitfox for some time, and is getting close to completion. Craig reports, “The Kitfox has emerged from my basement workshop not to return. While it was in my basement I had the fuselage on a fabricated wood landing gear. I could not install the actual spring gear in the basement because it was too wide to get out of the double doors that I installed before starting the project. This past Saturday, my brother Mark came over and we successfully rolled the plane out the doors and into postion under my deck which we then used to hoist the plane up and put the gear on. The plane is now in the garage where I will continue final assembly in preparation for moving it to Winsted Airport.” We plan a visit to see Craig’s airplane in the near future.
