Enjoyed the video frank. !!.......quickest aircraft building project I've ever seen!...As you know I enjoyed looking at this aircraft at your place a couple of weeks ago, and also enjoyed seeing Peter again after a few years when he came out Sunday morning. I didn't realize that peter had built the aircraft though....................................................Maj...024_cool.gif.7a88a3168ebd868f5549631161e2b369.gif
