Pulling a Bee out of the Woods
Usually, we pull up to a hangar and load an airplane up in the hot sun. But this time, it was a little different. Over 50 years ago, this airplane was disassembled and put out back with the intent to restore her. During those 50 years, houses, trees, and even a septic system was built up around her. Then came Fast Aviation with the challenge of pulling her out unscathed. A 1947 Republic SeaBee
I am sure you are wondering where this airplane is…
She’s all complete and hasn’t been too weathered like you would think. I was very surprised by the LACK of corrosion. I spent last night watching videos on youtube of SeaBee’s and I don’t know if I can let this gem go.
