Back in the shop again, I took some vacation to give me a full week off over thanksgiving. The 206 is moving rapidly moving towards paint and we are trying to finish off the last of the odds and ends as we wait for the final pieces to arrive. My small part in this was to fabricate and install the radio mounts in the tail cone. Each mount took the majority of one day to make. They are made out of .040" aluminum and are riveted together and riveted into place. The green color comes from a special phosphate aluminum primer that is especially necessary on a float plane in the Amazon.
We got the good news that our car in Brazil sold this week! Thanks for you prayers in this matter.
We would also like to request your prayers as we anticipate the arrival of Luke's ER bill. For those of you that have not heard, he hit his head hard and started vomiting and would not stop. The CT scan gave him a clean bill of health and was allowed to go home as long as he took it easy. We thank God for protecting him and keeping him safe.
Again check out MMS's blog and see me making the radio mounts.
