Event ~ Goodyear Blimp Wingfoot One visits the Fayetteville, North Carolina Goodyear Plant, 08/27 – 08/30

Pictures taken Wednesday, 08/29. It is a no-fly day…

I waited a long time for a lift-off and then learned it will not happen today. Wingfoot One is to depart tomorrow morning–maybe then…

Closer to putting on a skin/veneer and enclosing the cooler–probably wood for both

IMG_1824I built a frame for the heat exchanger that has more insulation on the sides and a mounting board for the temperature gauges. The register is temporary–just to have a correct sized opening. I hope to use a thin, decorative wood–maybe ¼-inch. The wood top in the photo is also temporary.

IMG_1823I have insulated the 10-gallon cooler and have to put it back on its base, then shorten the wiring. I will cover the insulated cooler. I am not sure with what yet–maybe wood slats to match the trailer’s front panel.
