Another of Robert Baslee’s Airdrome Aeroplane kit planes got its airworthiness certificate on February 22, 2016. I started construction in August of 2010. The aircraft is powered by a 2332 cc VW with a PRSU turning a 101 inch propeller. The airplane is finished in the colors of the first squadron commander of the 94th Pursuit Squadron, Major John (or Jean) Huffer. It is based at Hoelting Field, Basehor, Kansas (SN22.) I hope to fly to to Air Venture and the USAF WWI fly in this year.
