March 2016

Not only does Lloyd Richards fly lots of Young Eagles each year and represent his area superbly on the EAA Canadian Council, he also owns and operates a moving company—Richard’s Moving in Timmins. He sent us this photographic record of an aircraft transportation. - Editor

Here are photos of a homebuilt we recently transported to Kapuskasing, Ontario.

We do several of these a year, and it is a very good, safe way to do it.

As you can see, we’re very used to doing this. We place bracing struts across the width of the container, above the fuselage, and wrap them with shipping blankets and then place the wings on those struts and secure them.
