May 15 ï¿½ Since our Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes Waco UPF-7 was disassembled following pre-cover assembly, the project has entered a quiet period. For one thing, the Rare Aircraft company is moving its workshop, and our Waco, from Faribault, Minnesota, to Owatonna Degner Regional Airport, the company's headquarters located a few miles away. While that is happening over the next month or two, Rare Aircraft owner Roy Redman is drawing up schematics for the avionics that will be installed in our aircraft. Back in the shop, a landing gear jack strut that goes from the lower wing to the landing gear was found to be dented and worn and is being rebuilt. All's quiet while these behind-the-scenes tasks are accomplished.
The newest TBM does 330 knots and goes 1,730 nautical miles--and it's in production now.
You'll never guess what goes on inside this sleepy-looking, country home.
It is full of history, and ready for you to come browse.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
