The Other Welcome Wagon

The wheels are yeller, the upholstery's brown,
The dashboard's genuine leather,
With isinglass curtains y' can roll right down,
In case there's a change in the weather.

Well, the windows roll up, not down, they aren't isinglass, and there's no fringe, but the new Welcome Wagon #4 is pretty fancy. Built by EAA Chapter 91, the passenger's front window was made from a Sonex canopy. We haven't ridden in it yet as the ceremony to pass it from the chapter to the EAA is later this morning, but folks coming in later today may have a pretty cushy ride to wherever they need to go on the grounds.

Need a ride at AirVenture? Their number is 920-230-7906. Remember to put a little something in the donation bucket and maybe we'll see more.
