    Left for the exit around 11pm Saturday night and stopped to see the status. Plane was now in front of the tent and looked almost finished with about 5 builders still there doing work at that late hour.

    We flew home on Sunday. Did they complete it on time? Did anyone see them fire up and taxi?

    Hey, Floats! Get yourself to the Control Tower Videographer webcam....as of now it's playing a re-run of one of the airshows, and the first 8 minutes or so is is OWW start-up and taxiing around.

    Thanks for the tip Jim. How 'bout that!, from 100's of airplane parts in a box to taxi in 7 days. I do believe I saw my rivet and signature :-)

    Thanks for posting Russ, that's very cool. Kudos to all involved in this great and fun project. Looking forward to seeing it decked out in the paint scheme. Think it would look even better with a pair of Zenith amphibs attached.

    Once again, I saw my rivet and signature. :>)

    Anybody know why the right side of the fuselage looks like it's still got the clecos in behind the door? The left side doesn't look that way.

    The boys are really pleased that their favorite paint scheme won. They voted and then "Instructed" my wife and I "How" to Vote. That is an awesome video. Thank You for posting it.
