8-29-2004 after 6 1/2 years of building, the fuselage goes to the airport.
Here we have loaded my KR on a snowmobile trailer and have her all rigged for the 25 mile trip to Hartford (HXF) Airport.
The trip to the airport went without a hitch (no problems). We got a lot of looks and finger pointing from folks. It was actually fun watching folks as we passed by. Even got a thumbs up from an officer who pulled up beside us.
Here, we are beginning to unload the plane on the taxiway in front of my hanger.
All nestled and tucked away in her new home after we made a few taxi trips around the airport to let everyone know there is a new girl on the block. She did me proud as we taxied around. Yep, I am still grinning. The only bad feeling was when I returned home and opened the garage door and it was empty. After 6 1/2 years of having a plane in the garage, it was a strange feeling not seeing it there.
