ZUVLL L29

Unread post by Marty »

L 29 Delfin
Year 1971
Serial number 194227

In the process of proving flight.
The aircraft was brought from the UK reassembled, new paint job, touched up interior, new hydraulics hoses and new engine (TTSN 0)!
Many thanks to Vladimir and Yan for their exceptional work on the Ac to date, Jorgen Nielsen, who has offered hours of advice, assistance with parts, the new engine and the initial test flight.
