EAA 322 BUILD DAY KRUGERSDORP 15 FEB 2014
By Willie Bodenstein
In the spirit of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) Chapter 322 has set a goal of building an aircraft and in the process involve as many members as possible in the project. The original aircraft chosen for the project was a partially completed Pietenpol. Unfortunately problems with the quality of the completed sections caused this to be abandoned and the partially completed Pietenpol was donated to the Aeronautical Society of Pretoria Boys High School.
Unfortunately not to be……a completed Pietenpol
The forward fuselage section
The quality of the build is quite astounding
And this is what the completed Teddy will look like
Raring to go, the build volunteers, more hands will be most welcome
Oshkosh 2014 was the main topic of discussion whilst the meat sizzled on the braai
