Hog5 & Sona ,Book B derF spr nS n llp 0 By PAT HARRIMAN Royall has been watching Come true for the past , With the help of his son one of his employees, he has built a Christian Eagle II biplane from scratch. "You start with a kit and drawings and buy materials through Christian Industries," he said, "and assemble R a piece at a Dan Royall's Christian Eagle II biplane time." He said the plane should be ready for its maiden voyage at the end of July or the first of August. "I'll test fly it at the Athens Airport. It'll be quite exciting and we're planning a gala party, with champagne and barbecue." He said this first flight will also be the time to "get the riggings straight. That just means I'll have to take it in the air, make notes and then make adjustments." These adjustments are very minor, he said, and he is quite confident that everything will go well on the first flight. When finished, the plane will weigh 1,050 lbs., have a 20-foot wing span, be 18 feet, 6 inches long and stand 6 feet, 6 inches high. The 200-horsepower engine is fuel in- jected and has a top speed of 165- 170 m.p.h. Although Royall says there are several planes like this under construction, his is "one of the best and built in a shorter period of time." He said it takes most people three to five years to build a plane like this, but that the three men have spent an average of 15 to 20 hours a day working on the plane, seven days a week. "Th/s is better than buying a plane because of the tender loving care into the building of it. AH of it is hand-made and we have added.personal touches. We set up the instrument panel, did the rib stitchin by hand, which is a lost art, ann we used stainless steel screws and buffed them instead of using aluminum screws. The propeller is highly buffed instead of. painted and we painted the chrome engine. I want it to look as good inside the skin as it does outside." Royall said he estimated a total of 3,000 hours will be put into the the building of the plane by the time of its completion. "There's not anything about it that's not absolutely perfect." Royall has been flying for 30 years and plans to have fun flying his plane cross-country and taking it to various shows around the country. "They have contests all over the United States and they're a lot of fun. They decide which plane is the best-looking and the best ImiR." Although he says the Christian Eagle II is a "great sport and acrobatic plane," he said his main goal was having built a plane and having it work. "Them has given me a real sense of accomplishment. I can fly it cross-country or take it to shows, knowing that I built it and it's better than anything I could have bought."
