NAE™ Project: Update

Featured Sponsors


Saturday, December 18, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen:

NAE™ team members meeting at our Spanaway, Washington hangar this morning included: Sean Rondestvedt, Ed Shadle, Von Armstrong, Keith Zanghi, Rich Pengelley, Omar Chramosta and Steve Wallace.

As the old song goes...the weather outside was frightful...and the hangar temperature was a bit on the cool side.  This resulted in the usual dilemma of whether or not to light off the propane heater with all its smell and roar or just tough it out.  Keith lost in his initial bid for noisy heat by a simple majority vote...so most of the work day was fairly quiet and odor free.  He did get his way late in the day when his whine factor convinced some members to change their vote!  Heat at last.  Democracy works, folks.

Work continued on the front wheel steering system.  Some modifications are being made to make it easier to disconnect and reconnect hydraulic lines and to replenish fluid levels.  This required the removal of all of the parts from the steering box...a good move as it turned out.  The source of a mystery leak was found to be coming from normally inaccessible line fittings.

A lot of grinding, polishing, and painting of parts continued today.  Inspection and maintenance of all systems is an ongoing process in order to keep the North American Eagle in good condition. Rich assumed his usual position of late; on his back and under the fuselage drilling and tapping.

Special visitors to the hangar today.  Ed's daughter, Candy, came by to show off the Eagle to her in-law relatives, Marv and Elly Gellatly.

Christmas day is just a week away and Team NAE™ sends out best wishes to all our sponsors and fans.  May you all have a Merry Christmas, a wonderful holiday season, and a Happy New Year.

 

We know a lot of our fans are on facebook.  Now the North American Eagle™ is on facebook!   In fact many of our team members are also!  Tell your friends! It's fun!

We invite you to add a comment, or remark, about our program or the site.
