APRIL 2004

NC785H, a Stearman 4E owned by Alan Lopez and restored by the Posey Brother Team has won Grand Champion in the Antique category at Sun-N-Fun. Congratulations to the group for their effort.

James Cole, Mike Posey,
and Larry Posey part of the Posey Brother restoration team in front of the Stearman 4E that won Grand Champion in the Antique category.
Sadly, a few weeks after winning Grand Champion in the Antique category, the Stearman 4E was involved in a landing accident resulting in a rollover. The aircraft
was damaged but the pilot was not hurt. It was decided that work
on repairing the 4E should start right away.

The Posey Brother team has been hard at work repairing the damage to the 4E. Below are some pictures of the repair process. Though work on the M2 restoration has slowed, it has not stopped and a few photos of the M2 wings are also included.
