Thanks, hopefully I will be signing a purchase contract very soon, maybe today? and arranging for an annual as opposed to a “pre-buy”, I don’t believe in pre-buys, for one to be any good it should cover everything an annual does, and if you do that, why not reset the clock?
Anyway one member is handling the sale, and another the annual.
I don’t know protocol here so I didn’t post names, don’t know if I shouldn’t.
But if all goes well, I hope to have a D model at home in my hanger in a few weeks.
I plan on taking her “Home” to the Albany plant where she was born and taking some pictures on how they were built. What’s called the manufacturing specs are identical to what they were in 1965 when Commander built the plant, so all welding and Alodine, heat treat etc are identical, as you don’t change an accepted spec unless you have to.
I don’t know the new owners of Thrush, but know all the workers and surely the new owners won’t mind me visiting.
I’ve kind of always wanted to at least fly a Meyers, well at least since working at Thrush anyway, never really considered owning one though.
