Recirculate cockpit air to keep feet warm? by [email protected]
As we know, flying in wave with the sun shining, much of the cockpit stays reasonably warm, but the feet, down in the shade, get cold. So, as I'm here at home on a cold night with a fan helping distribute the heat from the wood stove to another room, it occurred to me that something like that may...

K8b restoration by John Foster
I was given a junked K8b due to water damage to the wood at the wing root and multiple tears in the original fabric and chipped/peeling paint.

Pawnee question by Greg Arnold[_2_]
The local towplane operation has a Pawnee that back in 1996 had an STC from STC Inc. (SA01154AT) modification to the wing attach cluster. Apparently it still requires a wings off inspection every two years. The owner of the operation has heard that there may be an inexpensive permanent fix that...
