Around the Hangar

Always the best place to see what is going on at the Minnesota Wing, this Around the Hangar post will be rather large indeed. I have a month an a half of photos to catch up on, and not nearly enough space to put them all! These are some highlights of the hard work going on at the Wing lately.
(Photos Thanks to Brian Strom)
(Nate Timm and Art Minkle guide a tour group through the hangar)

(The B-25 is lifted on jacks and the gear is retracted to make sure everything works right)
(Larry Utter makes sure everything clears properly in the nose gear well)

(Larry stands clear while the nose gear goes up)

(Always keep a lookout for prop blades! They can be dangerous, as Bob Wright found out)
(Earl Teporten checks for power in the engine nacelle... tight fit!)
(Amy Lauria and Bob work on the Harvard prop... Hammers and screwdrivers!)
(Like a blur, Steve Wagoner cleans the B-25's steps)

(The first event of the year was Roxi Legg's Birthday Party)
