Moved the plane to the Hangar

This weekend was a big weekend on the project and I couldn't have done it without the help of guys from my EAA chapter.  I was able to borrow the perfect trailer for the job and also a great truck to make the move.  I did have to prep the trailer and get everything ready so the trailer sat in my driveway overnight.  Saturday morning started early and it ended up being soo easy to load the plane in the trailer.  It fit perfectly and tie downs were in the perfect spots.  I had built some blocks for the spar slot, but ended up not needing to use them.  We hooked up the trailer and off to the airport stressing about every imperfection in the road on the way up.

Once we got to the airport, the trailer is so low that we were able to roll the plane right out and right into the hangar.  It wasn't the best weather rain, snow, wind..   but no worries with the enclosed trailer the RV was safe.
