How to build an airplane in 7 days
from Air & Space Magazine
Inside a tent on the opening day of AirVenture 2014, Experimental Aircraft Association chairman Jack Pelton started the countdown clock for the One-Week Wonder. From that moment, more than 2,500 volunteers would have six and a half days to take a Zenith CH 750 Cruzer kit from pieces on the tent floor to the airshow tarmac, taxiing under its own power. "If anything slowed us down, we were done for," says Charlie Becker, EAA's manager of homebuilt programs. Outside the tent volunteers lined up to perform their main job: Pull a shiny rivet. No experience necessary.
