The ferry pilot was at the plane at 8:30 when I drove by on the way to the hangar to work on Papa Golf. I stopped to see how things were going. He was waiting on another pilot he had asked to fly out to LA with him to show up, and they'd be on their way. It didn't work out that way, though. By 9:00 the weather hadn't improved at all, and actually looked like it would get worse before it would get better. That turned out to be exactly what happened.
They sat around the FBO watching the radar and checking the weather. I worked on the RV and made another trip to Lowes to buy some shelving, a workbench, a bench grinder, and a vise. The workbench is going to take hours to assemble, so I got started on that. At about 4:30 I heard an engine start. and ran down to the end of the hangars to see if it was the Tampico. It was. They took off and headed west at about 4:30.
Now it's just a matter of waiting a few days for the check to show up.
