  1. Does any one here have a good picture of the wing lift strut end that attaches to the fuselage not painted. Folding wings back and noticed crack in paint. Chipped paint away to look closer and it looks like there are two tabs on the lower and top flange that sandwich the fuselage attach lug.  Just want to see if this is normal construction and if these are 2 steel plates together. I wonder why would they not be welded together or do I have more to worry about? First post, little history of the Airdale flyer I have. Built by my father  and finished in 2002.  He passed away 3 years ago and kept plane in family. Just about 900 hours on the airframe so needing to keep a closer eye on her as she ages. Enjoying all of the 100 hours I have flown in this aircraft.

  2. Here is the inside of one of my engine cylinders, using a TV borescope: 130  hours since new, 42 with 100LL, the rest with Mogas. Comments??
