This blog is dedicated to the restoration and modification of a Glasflügel Standard Libelle H201B, and a tribute to those who have dared to do the same, and to those who are helping with seeing this dream take flight.

Today was the Day! NIXIE FLEW!
After four years of blood, sweat, tears, and bags of cash (that I didn't have),... the project took flight!
Getting her put together
Robert getting a test fit before we roll her out to the line.
Sharing a stick of Beemans gum before the test flight!
Rolling Robert out to the center line before hookup.
Hooked up and ready to roll!
Nixie is off!
She really does fly!!
Back on the ground, safe and sound!
The Team that made it possible!
Nixie was christened with Champagne.
My flight is next week.... I will be saying the "Shepard's" prayer ... Alan Shepard that is ;-)
