1977 at GSW Airport
Photo by unknown

This photo was made during the summer of 1977 as the aircraft was nearing completion of its first reassembly.  Soon after this photo was made, the aircraft was again disassembled and transported to the Southwest Aerospace Museum in Fort Worth.  This photo would fit nicely near the end of Chapter 3, page 3.
