For those that don’t know, my Dad’s been a small plane pilot for a couple decade now, give or take. He’s build his own experimental plane, as well as done a lot of work on several others. To say he’s good with his hands is an understatement. Still, everyone makes mistakes, and he has a story in the AOPA magazine (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) detailing one of them from a while ago.
I had no idea that he wrote anything like this, for publication or otherwise. I’m not sure if he even signs my birthday cards that my Mom sends. Pretty cool.
