Morgan shared the story of his restoration of an Aeronca. The amount of work required is incredible, especially if you have Morgan’s fanatical attention to detail. Prepping and painting the fabric wings was hundreds of hours of labor. He’s hoping to be up in the air this fall. Actually, it’s his wife Julie’s plane so she’s hoping to be flying it soon. One big question is the engine since it hasn’t flown in 10 years but everything looks good with only minimal corrosion so he’s hoping that it won’t cause any problems.

We had hot dogs at Paul’s hangar
then ambled over to Morgan’s hangar for his talk.
