The Thorp has always been and is
now kept in a heated hanger at the
Kenosha, Wisc. Regional Airport
(ENW). The first flight took place at
ENW on 12-9-1984. After the annual
inspection in 1999 by the FBO at
ENW the FBO did not tie down the
tail before the FBO did their after
inspection engine run-up. The tail
lifted and the prop struck the
ground. The engine was removed
and was taken to G&N Aviation in
Griffith, Indiana. The engine was
disassembled and inspected. The
engine was reassembled using
new slick mags, new Lamar starter,
rebuilt prop governor from
Hartzell, new rod and main
bearings, new oil pump gears, all
new hardware and other
miscellaneous parts. The engine
was painted red and dynoed. The
engine was installed on the Thorp
with new Lord mounts and bolts. At
this time a new Hartzell constant
speed prop was installed. Total
time on the Airframe was 398.0 hrs.
