Down Time Again

by on October 19, 2011

I haven’t had any actual flying posts lately because I haven’t been flying.  It’s the time of year that the Swift’s annual inspection is due – the end of October to be exact.  I started the inspection a couple of weeks ago and was promptly sidetracked by other projects at home.

So far I have completed the exterior of the tail and the inside of the aft fuselage. Panels are coming off and control bearing lubrication is underway. Lots of little things to do.

And now the transponder/encoder check has expired, so that’s on the list, too.  I’d much rather be flying, but heaven forbid if  all the boxes aren’t checked when I do.

A friend sent the link to this video today. I though I’d embed it in this post so you can watch it. Very well done.
