Default Plane Visit

I've updated a picture gallery on one of my web sites with pictures that I took of Lloyd Gimple's Cozy. He was kind enough to let me and Jan come down and visit him in Albuquerque, NM to check out his plane. A short drive down from Santa Fe and we were both drooling in his hanger. Lloyd spent a very patient four hours going over his bird and showing us different things. This was the first time we really had an opportunity to look a Cozy over or sit in one. We were both grateful and excited for the opportunity. The first set of pictures was taken during this visit.

A few weeks later he had his bird down for an annual and invited us back to help with shimming one of his wings. It was great seeing the guts of the Cozy and how the basic pieces fit together. The second set of pictures was taken during this visit.

Both visits gave us the opportunity to see and touch something tangible when all we've really seen were 2 dimensional plans.

Now I can't wait to see the bird parked on the ramp with her new wheel pants!

Thanks Lloyd!
