About Me

My photo
We are now in Oz after two amazing years of traveling Europe in our home built plane. We met many fantastic people who we are proud to call friends and have gained a much better understanding of the similarities and differences between the cultures of the different European states as well as the history and geography that have lead to these differences. We enjoy meeting people with similar interests to ourselves and learning more about other cultures. Please let us know if you're going to be in Queensland and would like to catch up for a meal and a chat.

Fancy bolts

Sometimes I wonder why planes can't be as mechanically simple as my bicycle, but I think I know the reason for that!  Today I spent many hours bolting the disk brakes & associated bits onto the main legs and then quite a long time fiddling around to fit the main legs onto the underside of the plane, at which point they become the undercarriage.  This was a pretty short day's work, but it really looks like we've achieved something.
