The day started for me at about 06:30 after a fairly broken sleep. I was keen to see my plane again. After the mandatory stop at Starbucks for coffee I opened the hangar door to see that somebody has loaned me a nice prop cover and filled in the engine intake holes. Nice of them. The aeroplane has a thick layer of ‘Chino Dust’ on it so I guess I’ve got something to do tomorrow.
I was keen to see what the change in humidity would do to the plane and even though I was expecting it, the wood has clearly dried out. It’s now got a significant ‘starved horse’ look to it as the skins have shrunk. One of the features or wood I guess. You can make it out through the dust. The spar is now clearly visible, which it isn’t normally.
while I was looking around I heard a quiet ‘Meeowww’, so being a cat lover I had to hunt it out. I soon kind of wished I hadn’t. The hangar cat was VERY friendly but clearly hadn’t been fed for a while. I hunted around for food and couldn’t find anything so I jumped in the car, went up to the gas station, and bought the poor thing some food. On the way out I saw Frank driving in so I called him from the gas station and told him I’d be a few minutes.
When I got back the poor thing was nowhere to be found so I put some food out and locked up as Frank arrived to pick me up….
