EAA 774 Meeting Spitfire

Our EAA Chapter meeting this month was a field trip out to Covey Trails (TX09), a very nice airpark in West Houston. Mr. Raybourne Thompson was nice enough to have us out to his hanger and tell us about his beautifully restored Spitfire Mark IX - "MK959".

He has done an incredible job on this plane. It now looks brand new. It was very interesting listening to Raybourne talk about the history of the plane also. You gain a real respect for the amount of work that goes into a restoration like this. If it were not for people like Raybourne, these planes would just not exist anymore.

The last 2 pictures is another project in the hanger which is a RV7. This is being built buy one of our members and will be flying very soon. What a nice and clean panel.

This website was built to document my work in compliance with the FAA requirements needed to certify my aircraft.
My experiences and comments are by no means to be considered as instructions on how to build any aircraft.
