Yesterday a crew of four from Air Heritage left to head to Geneseo to remove the right engine off of Luck of the Irish!
By the end of today, the engine should be off or nearly off of the airframe and will begin being prepped for the ride back to Beaver Falls. We expect the engine back no later than Monday evening.
Once back in Beaver Falls, we will remove some of the components and the engine will then be shipped to Anderson Aeromotive in Idaho where it will receive a complete overhaul.
We are HOPING that the overhaul will be complete by early December and the plane will be back in Beaver Falls before New Year’s.
Here are a few photos from yesterday’s work.
If you haven’t already, please consider donating to our secure fundraiser on Facebook via the link below. All donations directly go 100% to the aircraft without Facebook taking any commission on the donation.
