Travel Air Restoration Begins

A lot of people might look at these pictures and think we are nuts. Well, that may be true, but I am pleased to say that I have a loving wife and support from the kids that someday this bunch of old wood and steel parts might actually come back to life as a living and breathing Travel Air Biplane. Scrounging for parts may not be the most glamorous aspect of the process. But it has to start somewhere. And for me there is a driving vision that most can't see. I have described it to my family and I am not sure if they can see it too or if they are trusting me and acting on blind faith. Either way, it is inspiring to have their support. So... this is just the beginning. We have a long way to go. And there is more to the story which I will tell too as we go along. I plan to provide more updates in the future. For now, I will leave you with these photos of how it all starts... the restoration begins now!

Loading Day (it was a long day - into the night)

Unloading Day - getting a late start

Still Unloading - into the night...

Final Clean-up and the TA is tucked in safe under the Robin's wing.
