Ongoing D-VII & SE-5a work

We continue to make progress on the engine cooling ("mailboxes") and on relacing new wheels.  We have literally one of the world's best wheel lacing and wheel design experts located in Denver.  Mr. Woody Witt, of Woody's Wheel Works, has significantly improved the hub/brake attachment as well as increased the side-load capacity of the SE-5 wheels by perhaps as much as 30%.  Woody will be redoing wheels on most of our planes this year.  Look for more information on this outstanding technician on our website.
Here you see the center section "wing" that is installed between the two wheels of our Fokker D-VII as it is being rebuilt.  We'll be featuring more information on this rebuild process in future posts--stay tuned!
