Aug. 18 ï¿½ All five staff members of Rare Aircraft in Owatonna, Minnesota, are now at work on your AOPA sweepstakes Waco UPF-7. Or at least there were five before Doc Walker, a talented musician and fabric-covering craftsman at Rare Aircraft, hurt his back. He hopes to be back soon. Rare Aircraft staff are working 10-hour days, and several weekend days, to stitch the fabric on the wings and cover the stitching with tape. Paint will be ordered soon, but the decision on just what color is not finalized yet. Your votes earlier in the year on your favorite paint scheme will be taken into account, but the voting is now closed. AOPA President Phil Boyer will begin tailwheel transition training and Waco training at the end of this month at Owatonna.
