    Default High Sierra

    My buddy Dave and I are planning on flying our Pacers down (weather permitting) to Nevada to the fly in. Are any other Short Wingers coming?

    Planning on flying in Utah next week with some friends in Cubs and Pacers. I won't make Nevada.

    I can't make it this year since I just found out about this event a couple of weeks ago and I am leaving to China on the 17th of October. I am very interested to attend next year, but it will require a lot of planning since it is almost exactly 2,000 Miles from Winchester, VA. I will gather more information about it and plan to attend next year.
    Have fun, I watched the video ( ) and I'm hooked now.

    You want to help put pull a Husky out of a container, install wings and tail and sign it off in China. Save me a trip.

    I'm not sure if you want me to do that for you and the sign off definitely will be a problem. Where about in China? I will be in Shanghai and Ningbo area.

    I didn't ask. I didn't want to sound the least bit interested.

    When someone want's you to do the same in Australia, please make sure you are really really interested. Tell them it will take about three months to do and we will fill in the extra time sightseeing!

    Australia or New Zealand would be a definate interest, not China.

    I doubt the "sign off" would be a problem in China. Quality control is not exactly top priority over there. The good news is that a year after delivering the airplane there would be a bunch of low cost replica shortwings available.
