Chapter Meeting June 28, 2002

Instead of a normal meeting, the group took a field trip to visit Nate Mayo. Nate is a former Navy pilot but is best known for his work in restoring aircraft. Most of his restorations are planes owned by the Collings foundation and include a B-24, TBM, Bleriot and several others.

Now retired, Nate is now building, completely from scratch and from his own planes, a single engine plane based on the P-26 Peashooter. We were able to see the nearly completed fuselage, wing framework and various parts currently under construction in Nate's extensive machine shop.
