    Good to see the site back up. been dying to show ya these pics! Well, she's done...after a full year of working on her (mostly due to long breaks) she's finally done. that spot on the right wing is a mark left from the clamp that held the right engine in place...I knew I should have put something soft on it. I decided to hell with it, can't fix it at this point. FREAKY bit of info: N713TW was delivered to TWA on July 16, 1997. I turned 10 years old that day! owned by American Airlines after the TWA/AA merger, then sold to Delta on November 15, 2007. still flying with Delta, sporting blended winglets for extra range.

    buddy of mine pointed out that the right wing hangs lower. I looked at it and decided it wasn't worth trying to fix. she's done, movin' on to the Piper CHerokee! :)
