Tanya & Bryan Duke's RV-6 Panel Rebuild
30 May 05: Memorial Day. Today I remembered my brothers in arms by flying an Extra 300L in a missing man
flyby for the Boulder City Memorial Day ceremony. I was #2 in a 4 ship of Extras following a 4 ship of 3 RV's and
a Pitts. The RV's did a diamond formation & we followed them about 1/2 mile back & did the missing man pullup with
smoke & the whole 9 yards.
Here are 3 of the Extras...
Jordan Wirsz was kind enough to let me do the flyby flying from the front seat of his beautiful Extra.
The flush mount brackes for my EFIS/Lite are mostly done. My setup is a two simple brackets made from .032"
aluminum sheet. That mount plus the panel stiffeners & radio tray
mounts need to all get riveted in place. If you hold the EFIS & mount in place on the panel, it looks very nice
with the screen perfectly flush with the panel.
I'm soon on the way to Canada for a few days, then Phoenix this weekend. There probably won't be much
new progress for a week or so.
