But due to the cold, bad, snowy Kansas weather, getting the plane TO
Osage was an ordeal. The weekend of February 7th, in 35+ mph
winds and 18 degree weather, we struggled but managed to get Bravo
back home in the hangar.
As if fighting the weather wasn't enough, we had to dig several feet of snow out around the hangar door just to get it open. But the ice had frozen the door shut. We took a sledge hammer to the iron frame to break it loose. But the pulley system wasn't strong enough to open the heavy door still and the chain broke.
and Turk pushed the door open enough holding it in place with 2 x
4's to work on the broken chain. Of course, then there was the
issue of the plane sliding in the snow and ice as they pushed it
into the hangar... no worries, there is only 3 inches of clearance
on each wing going into the hangar! But Jim, the pro, only
took 2 tries to get it!
So, when is Spring getting here?
