Waco headed for the paint booth

Oct. 4 � Work is proceeding at Rare Aircraft again after a brief delay to upgrade the paint booth with a sprinkler system. Individual parts are getting a coating of the unique dark red paint chosen for the AOPA Waco UPF-7. The fuselage has all its plumbing, such as fuel lines, and is wrapped and ready for the paint booth as well. Workers at Rare Aircraft are working long hours to get the aircraft ready for AOPA Expo at the end of October in Palm Springs, California.
