On this date,in 1937, Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan disappeared over the Pacific Ocean on their round the world voyage. Purely by coincidence I mounted this in my backyard today. This was fashioned after the Lockheed Electra 10E they were flying.
I’m a big fan of Art Deco and all that 1930’s stuff. They had style. Cars, clothes, trains and planes, they did it right.
Cypress, no finish, it will become grey in time. 16 and 1/2” wingspan. It seemed to work good with a fan, but there has been no breeze since I mounted this. I’m hoping it works. I made 2 jillion mistakes on this. The post is pressure treated 4×4.
