''Introduction - Skin-On-Frame Aircraft''
Skin On Frame Aircraft (HHM)
1991 I wasn't building Baidarkas.
Actually I flew over the Atlantic from
Germany and then drove a car from New York City to Los
Angeles and back, carrying my bicycle in the trunk
and having a ride here
and there. The lesson leant is that it is easy to carry a race bike
with you on an airplane... I just disassembled everything and put the
pieces in a solid box, the largest parts were the wheels and the bare
naked frame. The next pics show three airplanes I have seen 1991 and I
found it interesting they were an aluminum frame, covered with translucent skin.
But what started me into the whole paddling business
was this Oregon Coast trip in 1992.
