The seats are done

Sept. 13 � Progress is moving rapidly along in Owatonna, Minnesota, on your Waco UPF-7 Centennial Sweepstakes airplane. One of you will win it in January 2004. It should fly for the first time in October. Before that happens, it has to have seats. Here is the official description of the seats from the manufacturer, Airovation. "The seats are fabricated from Douglass Interior Products Leather (Orkney-Black) in a tuck & roll yoke style bucket. The foam used in both seats is the same high resilient self extinguishing FR foam used in many of Airovation's jet interiors. The pilot seat bucket frame was covered with the same leather installed over ensolite closed-cell foam."
