EAA Chapter 1298 Brooksville Florida Member 

Home   Merle Wagner  -  Spring Hill, Florida  -  Wittman Tailwind  -  N68TW


    This aircraft was completed by Jim Doan (previous chapter member of 1298) in 2005

I purchased this from Jim’s estate. It is now in a rebuild state where I am adding some major modifications including a new Viking engine of 170 HP with Turbo, GRT auto pilot and glass panel (GRT Avionics). Additional photos will cover the rebuild process and final outcome. The photo you see now is the “before” state.
