WACO Project 101

The art of dismantling a 1929 biplane and reassembling it is quite a story in itself. Never mind the fact that the Taperwing WACO is on display at the Ottawa Airport today through to mid September. Doug Hempstead, Ottawa Sun reporter, thinks so too. He spent the better part of the morning filming and interviewing Team WACO during the process that involved towing the aircraft from the ESSO Avitat hangar along Aiport Rd into the main terminal. Things got more involved with the unforecasted but necessary removal of the wheels off the fusselage in order to fit the airplane through the doors.

Here's a brief peek of today's event.
