With the stands braced upright the wings are loaded on the racks and strapped on. The straps are crossed to provide fore and aft stiffness. The lower wings are on the inside and the uppers on the outside, with the tips toward the front of the trailer.
Once the wings are loaded the stands are laid down.
With the plane lined up correctly the tail wheel just follows the wooden track to the front of the trailer.
The wings racks get stood up with the wind brace latched. The top braces are bolted on and the lower ratchet straps added.
The last thing is to strap the ramps to the deck of the trailer.
We parked the plane on the trailer next to our tent right at show center.
The whole family was there. Everyone had spent some time helping build it when we were kids.
Brother David and Sister Diane look on as Mom and Dad inspect the new look.
The tail surfaces are clamped to keep from moving. The tail wheel is tied down so it can move fore and aft as the plane bounces but can't come up out of the track. David, Dennis and Debbie getting ready to unfold the wings.
We didn't put the wings on but brothers David and Donald helped move the wings down so everyone could see the plane.
We're back in Virginia. I'm healing from hip surgery and look forward to flying Fly Baby very soon. More good old days yet to be enjoyed.
