Kitty’s Back!


Kitty, the junior welder in the Vern-William-Kitty trio, spent the day working with us  in my hangar. It has been a long time since she was a shop regular, almost a year since we have seen her. Kitty lives over on beachside, but is planning on working with us some this spring. A welcome boost in productivity and good company. We spent the day welding motor mounts and eating the wild hog ribs Vern BBQ’ed.



Above, a chilly day outside my hangar.  Smiles reflect a good mood; a positive tone for a really good spring.  If you recognized the title of this story as a 1973 Bruce Springsteen song, you are either old or from New Jersey, or like me, both.




About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at and in more than 50 magazine articles.

    Greetings from Amelia Island. When I get over this pesky leukemia, I’ll be down there with the tastiest, juiciest, smoked shoulder you ever put in your mouth… Oh… and my Corvair that you built back in 2007 which I am building again. Tried to get up with you at DeLand, but you were one step ahead all day. Enjoying your blog.
