Bill Dixon

From Bill Dixon (Dixonwingnut@aol.com)
 
Hi Gary, My name is Bill Dixon and I am building a Breezy in south-east Michigan.

I got started in June 03 and so far have only built the control column, rudder peddals, main gear, and nose gear.

I got lucky and was able to purchase a 30 year old 0-200B with only 5 hours since new!!!!

Also, I bought a pair of new Dakota Cub wings that look absolutely beautiful.

Now I'm ready to start the fuselage.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated since I have only talked to Carl Unger about building this fun airplane.(this is my first airplane project)

Hello Gary,
 
Breezy N5150 is almost ready to fly.  I hope to have the local DAR inspect my plane with in the next month.  Here are a few of the latest pictures. (They) were taken this evening (11/20/05).  I will let you know how the test flight goes.
 
Best Regards,
