Meeting Visit – 27 January

We were invited by Nick & Brenda Nyenhuis to visit their shop on 27 January 2018 at 1:30 and see the VANS RV-10 which they have under construction. They had good progress to show on the fuselage plus a slide show & information about interesting things which they saw when they attended Oshkosh this summer.  Ten EAA members were able to make it to the meeting and enjoyed a couple hours learning of tools and techniques used by Nick in his build.
