Kip, these are wonderful pictures!

All,
For those of you who are not aviators, 1,000 AGL is 1,000 feet above ground level. In this case, sea level is ground level since they're over the ocean. If they were flying 1,000' above a 14,000' mountain, they would still be at 1,000' AGL, but at an altitude of 15,000' MSL (above mean sea level).

Do you want to patch the belly pan or replace? You can also do a google search here on the forums as there are a couple of belly pan replacements on the same year GT that you are working on, currently in progress

Hi Aerowood from Arvada,

I had to chuckle. The wife and I wonder about those polluted plums you are analyzing from your aircraft. I'm glad you are keeping them out of the stores. I don't want to eat any polluted plums! I didn't know they grew plums in the winter.

The big power plant in the town north of here really spews a big plume of water vapor on these cold days. You can see if for miles.

I can't wait until Zep replies to your post!

I wonder if your airplane is real noisy? Looking at that huge turboprop spinning in your photo reminds me of the old Beech King Air we use to fly for business. Nice airplane, but noisy noisy!

David

Well it was early when I wrote the post

Our C-130 is not exactly quite either, but if there's any noise complaints, the military in the area will take the rap

Well I'm going to have to eat some Crow. My Wife and I went to a Airstream Rally this past weekend near Buena Vista CO, and it rained, and rained , and rained, then pea size hail, then it rained some more. My previously reported and bragged about GT that had no leaks, now has a small leak on the bottom inboard corner of the right wing window. I bought a small tube of latex caulking at the local Ace Hardware store and sealed the area up and stopped the drip. This weekend I will seal it up properly before I head out on the road again to Sacramento CA for the next month

Hey Kip....work those leaks. I see your still flying the Herk. I sure miss it. Here is a little clip from my Southern Air Transport days. Most folks won't understand, but you will.

'71 Globetrotter Full Monte

Son has been driving KC130J for USMC in Robert Cross old unit in Japan. Those Dowty-Rotol prop blades change the sight and sound of the classic Herk.

The Globetrotter is my current project as I have to change 6 skins now, along with the stringer problems. I,m going to try to bend all the new stringers up today. We have a CNC press brake and it will take longer to set it up then to run the parts. I,m going to make a bunch, so if anyone needs some, I will have them. I,m making 2 styles. Zee's and C channels, 1inch legs and total height of 1.750, .040 thick, 2024-T-3.

Using the right channel

Hi Kip
I got busted fron the site admin for trying to respond to you from my I-phone. I guess i should use the right channel. Speaking of channels I am looking for 1 1/2 " base(id) with 1 1/2 outside leg and 1/2 inside keg. If this is what you are bending count me in.
I'm in the middle of a frame-off of a '60 Tradewind. My first A/S project.
Your posts are great! Really helpful.
