Stratford Corsair – Thursday 5th Aug 2010 – Repairs Get Under Way

Checking in to let everyone know that work continues. We are all real busy with individual projects and as of Saturday I understand Ed and Mark K. have stripped the 110 nuts off the factory cockpit joint. We are planning to remove the fuselage this upcoming Thursday. That is fates don’t rear their ugly head.
