The Thorp has always been and is now kept in a heated hangar 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. at this time.
