Out in the Heat - Local Projects, Cessna 170 and T-6
This past weekend was a typical summer weekend in Texas. Triple digit heat and a south breeze that felt like a hot hair dryer blowing all the time!
My schedule was wide open for the day on Saturday so I planned to visit a couple of different airports to see some friends. First stop was my home airport, Northwest Regional. I did some planning ahead for my annual next month and did a little cleaning on my 170. The 170 would stay parked in the hangar and I resorted to air condition transportation for the day!

Third stop for the day was Propwash Airport near Justin, Texas. My friends at Cowtown Aerocrafters are making great progress on their T-6 project. The engine has been run, major components are on and the final list of details are being addressed. As is said at this stage of most any project... it won't be long now!
On almost every visit to Cowtown we review the latest happenings in the world of Warbirds and it wasn't any different this time. We review the Oshkosh award winners, the up and coming restorations and on this visit I learned of a new aircraft type in bound to the hangar. Stay tuned here to see pictures of the incoming arrival!
