Guys, let me share some good news!

The changing of the odd windows are in progress and all of the will be changed within the next month or so.

We got a new landing light also under the left wing. The light has a wonderful story.
Many years ago a guy got it from his friend for night-fishing. But he was not satisfied with it and stored it for long years in one of his storages. And now we have an almost new landing light for HA-MAL.

The beauty in the late afternoon sunset. All of the windows are already changed on the left side, right side will be ready on the next week! The team will slowly prepare the bird for the first engine start.

Sorry Guys, I was out of town for a while.

Some short news, pictures are coming soon.

Etching of the wings and engine cowlings is ready, registrations are painted up. Some painting is needed on the lower side of the wings. The team will be ready with the last windows too. They are preparing the engine, systems and the cockpit for the first engine start-up.

Yesterday the team tried to start-up the engine. I am sorry to say, but it was not successful. Some parts of the engine need to be repaired or checked by technicians. Next try will be in March or April.

In this week the final painting methods will be finished and I will post some pictures about the finished exterior. It's truly awesome!
