June 21st

We got up early and went to the airport for the EAA breakfast and flyin.  I went over and taxied the Flightstar over to the ramp with all the other planes, then spent time talking to oglers and Mike from the RC club - he gave us a talk on his 7' Phantom replica.

After I put the plane away, I went to replace the CHT probes, only to find that the wires on the new ones are too short.  I figured I could easily lengthen them (when I have wire, that is), but then one of the new probes is 12mm, rather than 14mm, so I couldn't get the spark plug through it.  Bob Sagget!  I also found a broken earth line, so I put the old probes on and we went home.

In the afternoon, we went to the Fieldhaven cat rescue fund raiser.  It wasn't as dull as the usual SPCA events.
