Thanks to Dave Abbott's skilled salesmanship at the Caesar Creek Contest and Mark Rottler's skilled negotiations at the airport on 6/28 the 1-26 fuselage donated by Josh Daisey and some other miscellaneous parts have been sold freeing up some needed space on the balcony in the middle hangar. There are rumors that these funds may go toward a water system to remove the iron from the water at the airport.
