It was great to have some family members come out today and walk thru the airplane. I even managed to get my wife, Lorie to come see what I do when I'm out at the museum!
We also got some news coverage when a cameraman from WTOC showed up to document the event.
We wrapped things up around 1700 and buttoned everything up, shut down aircraft power, disconnected battery charger, disconnected our antennas, closed the aft hatch and moved the stairs back.
We're planning to do this again on Nov. 11th and 12th to commemorate Veterans Day.
