Default Wright Flyer picture

Judy has often posted that I've gone off to work on a replica of the 1903 Wright Flyer and some have asked for pictures. A local photo artist used our airplane in his latest production. I don't have permission to insert it here but if you're interested you can go to Image Alchemy Online Gallery | New Pictures | Preflight Of The Wright Flyer.

Keith,

Obviously all of your hard work has handsomely paid off and that is indeed a gorgeous picture!


Have y'all built it for static display only or do you intend to actually fly it?

Also, are you familiar with or have you ever visited the Old Rhinebeck Airdrome in Rhinebeck, NY started by the late Cole Palen? As fascinating place and some fascinating airial exhibitions using real antique aircraft.

Yes we intend to fly it, maybe sometime this winter. We just started our taxi tests late last month. No I haven't been to Rhinebeck but I've heard that it is quite amazing.
