May 19, 2016 - EAA Chapter Meeting Skybolt Project

This month's EAA Chapter meeting was at Joe Smith's shop where his radial-powered Skybolt project is nearing completion.  He has it covered and is making good progress on the painting.  Joe's gotten a lot done in the 15 months since we saw it last:  Link.

It's really quite amazing all the things that end up going into an airplane.
The checkerboard represents lots of work taping and masking!
A good look at the big radial engine.
I can't wait to see this one fly!
