It's midway through the week and the National Weather Service has placed a "Tornado Watch" on Coshocton County through 10PM tonight. Right now that's hard to understand as the weather is quite nice after rain showers overnight and through the early morning. The sun is out, the sky is blue, there are a few clouds but no visible threat at this time. There is a breeze but no strong winds. We'll have to wait and see how the rest of the evening plays out.

Moody Aviation 182
Mike's work on the 182 continues to look the same, day after day, as he wraps and runs wire into, underneath, and through the airplane's control panel. The progress is slow but steady.

GCI 310
Paul worked to install a new alternator on the 310's right engine.

CMML Engine
Josh continued organizing parts prior to engine build-up.

Honduran 206
After painting the Honduran 206 white, Ian and Scott L. continued to prep the aircraft fuselage for the color coats. They plan to shoot the red stripe tomorrow. After that they'll shoot a blue stripe. The registration number stencils are in place, the lines are taped, and they're in the process of using a special plastic wrap to cover everything on the fuselage that isn't supposed to be red.

Scott and Ian wrap specific areas of the fuselage in protective plastic.

Brazilian 206
Andy and Tim F.'s work on the Brazilian 206's horizontal stabilizer has moved to the point of lining up holes and making final adjustments to the fit of the leading edge.

Andy drills into the stabilizer.

Lamp 337
As Scott G. organizes parts and conducts research into airworthiness directives and service bulletins related the project, Chuck focused on repairing the nose gear door system.

Chuck inspects the mechanism that closes the retractable nose gear doors.

Lord willing we won't have any tornadoes to watch for tonight.
