Message from Nancy Van Wormer

Greetings to my dear friends in South Carolina . I have reclaimed the cottage after a two year absence and have the help of my parents who are visiting from British Columbia. My 92 year old mom insisted upon climbing up on the Jeep seat for this shot! Lee's presence is everywhere I turn from the calm water days when I know he would be flying his float plane, to the night a hose broke on the water pump and the basement was flooded - how do I fix it, Lee??
I think of you all many times a day and picture you walking around the airpark, going out to dinner, doing trash pick-up and flying off to Breakfast Clubs. It's a wonderful life - enjoy it to the max! Love, Nancy

Pilots Meeting Canceled

Due to conflicting work and personal schedules of both Jack and myself the pilots meeting has been canceled for tonight. Did not make an earlier post on this because I was hoping that one of use would be available, but this is not the case. New time. I don't know yet. It is looking like it will be possibly July 30th since many of us will be attending Oshkosh this year and not around earlier. Eric Demaray

First Step to Recovery - Tail Removal

Tuesday: July 10, 2007

Today, the new owners of 6447Q, started the recovery process of repairing and restoring my old bird, a 1967 Mooney M20F. As you know it had the misfortune of rolling down Jack's taxiway tail first into a tree.

The first thing they did was to remove the tail section where it bolts to the tail cone. then they drilled out all of the rivets behind the last window. Inside, on both sides, are two bolts that hold the structures together. Then they removed the prop and spinner.

Loaded onto a flatbed trailer they headed off to Tennessee to begin restoring. He said that in no time, it will have a new tail, paint and interior. It will fly again!
