Driving the Airplane to the Airport


Three years ago, my husband completed building a Van's Experimental Aircraft, model RV-7, in a farm shop. It took six years (in his spare time) to build. The plane cruises at about 180 mph, although when there's a strong tail wind, it can go as high as 220 mph. Hubby hauled it to the local airport with one of our little farm tractors. Once it was there, he attached the wings and later painted it.

It's an odd sight, is it not?

  1. That picture needs to be entered in a contest somewhere. I just love the dichotomy between the tractor and the airplane. Very cool!
