The hot muggy weather we’ve been having for seemingly forever finally broke on Friday night as the first of two cold fronts came through. By Sunday AM it was much cooler and drier. I took advantage by taking one of Terry’s friends flying. We managed to find her father’s farm, and she experienced a loop and a roll, and got to fly the aircraft for awhile. She was very happy. Good flight.

I spent a bit of time today inspecting all the camping gear, to be sure it was ready to go for Oshkosh. Terry flew to Green Bay today to spend some time visiting her sisters. Weather permitting, I’ll fly the RV–8 to Wisconsin on Saturday, 27 July. We’ll spend Saturday night with one of her sistsrs, and early Sunday morning we’ll fly into Oshkosh and set up camp. I’m looking forward to meeting up with a bunch of friends.

    High Kevin,
    Since it's next to the flange, and were it's subjected to severe temperature changes, it' probably become brittle. DC-3's cylinders have known to seperate do to the cold in Alaska.
    I don't now of a non-destructive test for this problem. As a Grumman employe; we took our problems to work.
    Regards Roge
