I have a new set of wings - well new to me - they're off a 1978 A36 that had 7200TT (EZU has 7150ishTT) that was force landed wheels down in a farmers field. The nose wheel collapsed and stove in the nose bowl (zero other damage) and the insurance company wrote it off - it must have been severely UNDERinsured. I bought the wings, and some other bits, from a fella who purchased the aircraft as is, where is, from the insurance company.
A good mate who is an A&P in Georgia flew his V35B up to Ohio, checked out the wings, took pics and pronounced the wings perfect.
Jay. I just sent him the $ and he organised EVERYTHING else - its good to have mates.
Interior behind spar
Inside leading edge
Wheel well - note the wings came with gear and brakes - brakes near zero time.
Wings stored awaiting a buyer - ME!!
The wings also came with the flaps, ailerons and gear doors.
As soon as I had paid for them the VERY strange fella I bought em off insisted they be removed from his hangar - so we stored em in another hangar for a few days until the truck came and picked them up.
They arrive in BNE 29th July. After parting out my old wings I figure these wings will have cost me 1/4...maybe even 1/5th, of the cost of restoring EZU's old wings - not to mention getting it done years earlier.
We have a bit to do to finish off the fuselage then it wiring/panel/interior/paint.
But soon I will have a complete Bonanza again - if not all in one piece at least all the pieces will be in perfect condition and complete in and of themselves.
