So our latest acquisition here at the museum is a 1937 Clip winged Monocoupe. The Monocoupe was originally from the Pacific Northwest. The airplane was owned for the last 15 years by Richard Smith of Franklin,PA. The plan was to fly the airplane back to Concrete,WA this week but due to weather issues it was decided to take the airplane apart and truck her back across the country.So far the trip has been a success. Below is a picture of the airplane sitting out side waiting to be moved into the hanger so we can take her apart:
Below you can see we have successfully removed the wing from the fuselage…
…and here she is all loaded and ready to start trucking.
We will keep you updated on our progress back across the country here on our blog, and all our social channels, so check in regularly for updates.
