Hey all you guys (and gals) building Lightnings (and those now flying), how about updates on your projects. I kept you guys informed when 31BZ was going together and in the test flying phase, so how about some of the same from you. I am sure there are lots of people out there that just need a little encouragement on a regular basis to get to work on their projects or perhaps to make the final decision to get on the order list. Surely some of you can type. Smile So check in with your N number or kit serial number and give us all an update on your progress, thoughts, or suggestions. Liven up this list.

Thanks, Buz! I'm leaning towards a Lightning. I want to know more, from other builders, about their experience with the company and plane. I understand that Linda's plane is in the paint shop this week and that her panel is almost ready for installation. I hope to go to Shelbyville around the end of February for a personal look - see. Regards,
John W.

Hey Guys & Gals: I am seriously interested in starting a Lightning. I now have a Bonanza and an Ercoupe.
I am looking for info on how others are doing on their projects, and how they like the airplane.

Lynn and John,
At least we know there are a few of us on the list today. Hopefully more will check in soon and provide updates on their projects. Both of you mentioned thinking about building a Lightning and I would certainly encourage you to do that. If you want a great looking, great flying, fast flying and quick to build airplane that is inexpensive to buy and inexpensive to operate, then the Lightning should be high on your list. Lynn, I would assume from your e-mail address you have an S model Bonanza. Great airplane. I had an M-35 for 15 years or so (past Oshkosh and Sun-N-Fun champ), but when it sold I replaced it with my Esqual LS (Lightning stuff - hybrid). Fuel cost went way down. I still have my J-3 Cub, but have sold my S1S Pitts that I had for 29 years. I just was not flying it enough since I finished the Esqual. And as much as I love my Esqual, the Lightning is a better airplane. You will love it.
Blue Skies,
Buz

Buz. I am just about ready to fly Lighting 155LT and it will take me a while to get it up to your standards of fit and finish but I am working on it. I wish I had gotten to fly in your bird when you were down to Shelbyville but I did not. Should finish it on Monday and the bring it home the following Saturday. It took a lot longer than I thought but that is the way things like this go.

I would like to see your Autopilot mounting some time I will still have to do that when I get it home.

Hope to see you soon.

Hi John,

Sorry we won't get to see your finished airplane; we arrive back at SYI on the 22nd to finish ours. Maybe during your test flying period, you can drop in to SYI to show it off.

Hope to see you soon, Linda and Joe Mathias

Buz,
You'd feel right at home with Mr. Davis's stick grips. I'll get a
picture for you on Monday. They look great and are more ergonomical than
just the round padded ones I think.

At SYI there is Duane Sorenson's bird which is newly completed. You'll be
able to see that if you're down in the next week or two. I'll be test
flying the required time off of that one as soon as it passes inspection.
I'll have to give Mr. Sorenson a call. He was really sick before Christmas
and haven't seen him since.

I am also finally ready for my flight testing to begin on the prototype for
the unmodified condition for the Lightning. Afterwards I will put the flap
hinge fairings on. (8 in all) There's also a 3 inch gap on the underside
of the wing between the back of the wing and front of the flaps. It is
sealed on top, but smoothing this out I think will yield some speed gains.
The ailerons will be gap sealed, underside of the elevator and probably the
sides of the rudder. I'm hoping for an 8mph gain in cruise
speed/efficiency. That's it for now, Brian Whittingham

Hi folks,
Well, guess I should also chime in with my "latest" news.

Lightning N727RB is just about ready for inspection.If all goes well, will
get inspected the first week of Feb.
I guess we are looking at one of those "90% done, 90% left to go"
stages......!
Gonna' be back at SYI Feb.2, looking forward to getting that baby done and
flying soon.

Tell you what, John Davis sure has one pretty Lightning....and some of the
others are going to be beautiful too when they get done.They are definitely
FAST looking just sitting on the ground.

The competition is going to be tough when these things start showing up at
fly-ins! Wahoo!

Rick
