We plan to go to Prescott, Arizona, then to Winnemucca, Nevada, to visit our brothers. We feel it will be a great adven- ture, taking one to two months. In closing, the N-numbers for my aircraft— N5970C and N5970H—have some signifi cance. I graduated from high school in 1959, was 70 years old when Airplane No. 1 was completed, and "C" is my initial; 59 was my sweetheart's age when I started Airplane No. 2, 1970 was when she graduated from high school, and "H" is her initial. I need to express lots of thanks for help during these projects: for the patience of my sweetheart during all of this airplane building; to Zenith Aircraft Company for answering all of my questions during the builds; to EAA for its help with an issue with FAA dur- ing the inspections; and to my fl ight instructor and a host of others who helped to get all of this done.
