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.
