Jeff Quesenberry 's Boyington Corsair Project

The F4U is all finished. Required 21 pounds of nose weight with a final of 89 pounds finished weight. Here are shots of the plane all assembled, and one of me in there. The maiden flight is slated for the 4th of July weekend. Been a long 9 months, but was fun, and we hope it works out.

Jeff will detail it out and add graphics after it is flight proven.

Any way you look at it you can tell it's big, very big !

Jeff and crew prepare for the first flight.

She is up and flying!

After a go around Jeff puts the flaps down and sets up for landing.

Jeff sets her down nice and easy.
