Ken Gifford is from Appleton WI, just North of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He visited us during AirVenture 2005 in Oshkosh and took the TUNDRA up for a demo flight. Ken was pleased with the flight and the TUNDRA's rugged construction and ordred a tail kit in August 2005, right after the AirVenture show. Following are some pictures of Ken's assembly progress.
Rudder parts pre-assembled on clecos.
Horizontal stabiliser structure all riveted together.
Elevators structures riveted and ready for the skins.
