“Just wanted to give you a new photo of my Stinson.Â We finished the recover project this spring and she is back in the air again!”
Project: 1946 Stinson 108 Voyager.
A few shots of the process……
“Wings done; fuselage ready to recover … this is what a naked plane looks like!”
“The plane now has paint! Whoo hoo…”
“I’m sooooo lucky!! I got wings for my birthday! I married the best guy ever!! I’ll be flying again soon!”
And finally flying!
The following was posted Feb 7, 2011, before the recover.
Taildraggers are the real deal! Â I learned how to fly in a Piper Cherokee 6, then had to start all over to get my TW… Â I couldn’t even taxi the first time I got in a taildragger. Â Originally learned to fly in Idaho, so did a bunch of back country flying where the only way to go is TW. Â Now here in North Carolina it isn’t as important, but still the best way to go!
This year we are re-covering my 1946 Stinson 108… Â I can’t wait to see my ole girl restored to her original splendor! Â Stay tuned for more!
