See One Week Wonder, Staff STOL at Zenith Open Hangar Day
September 18, 2014 - EAA’s One Week Wonder Zenith CH 750 Cruzer as well as the EAA staff-built CH 750 STOL are both expected to be flown to Mexico, Missouri, for this weekend’s annual Zenith Open Hangar Day and Fly-In scheduled for Friday and Saturday, September 19-20. Both planes are through with Phase 1 flight testing (the STOL finished just this week), so weather permitting, they’ll both participate in the annual event.
The wildly successful One Week Wonder airplane was built in seven days from a kit during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014. Thousands of people participated and a core group of volunteers shepherded the project through to completion. Attendees who wear their One Week Wonder T-shirt can get a free ride around the Mexico Memorial Airport pattern in the aircraft.
Charlie Becker, EAA director of communities/homebuilt community manager, will provide an EAA Update presentation from 1-2 p.m. Friday in which he will discuss both building projects. EAA will also have an exhibit booth at the event, and Becker is scheduled to speak about the One Week Wonder project at the Zenith banquet, which gets underway at 6 p.m. Friday. Tickets to the banquet are available online.
The Zenith Open Hangar Day and Fly-In will also feature factory tours of Zenith kit production facilities, factory demonstrator airplanes on display on the ground and in the air, kit production and fabrication technique demos, and numerous vendor exhibits.
