All photos me as usual, copyrighted as well
Seeing from my blog stats that the previously featured Seawind 3000 has been attracting a lot of interest (relatively), I’ve decided to put together another small gallery of more recent pictures :). Apart from adopting the experimental “X” registration prefix – a category that seems to appear and disappear on a regular basis – and undertaking a fast taxi run that didn’t end all that well (see captions below), it’s slowly but surely nearing first flight, albeit at a non-spectacular-photo pace :D.
Structurally complete and ready for some taxiing! 🙂 Now this looks more like it, complete with some color!
A few days later however, I found it propped up and back under covers. It had transpired that the gear was significantly damaged during the fast taxi run (something or other with the hydraulics), but I was told the repair was relatively straightforward so we may see her move again soon 🙂
Quite an oddly-shaped aircraft in profile view :). Try making this out of aluminium...
Some night spotting for a change :). Still some way from completion at the time this photo was taken...
