Hey lazairheads

Anybody have any cool pictures of the hangers they store their birds in? Chappy and Paul, don't post pics of your trailer :) The Edmonton Lazair Club is in the initial stages of hanger design, and any pictures or ideas would be really appreciated!

Years ago I saw a neat mini T-hangar made just for a Lazair. Actually, it was more like a T-shed than a T-hangar. It was very small, custom built to just fit a Lazair. A narrow rear section housed the tail, and then cantilevered forward to support the roof that just cleared the engines over the wing. It had three front doors that folded out and down. You could open just the center door to gain access. Three smaller doors were light enough each to raise by one person. When closed, they supported the roof. Because it was so small, it was pretty inexpensive to construct. Dale Kramer designed it, and built one at his brother's grass strip outside Port Colburn. I think several more were constructed by Lazair owners back in the early eighties. Sorry, I can't find pictures (as usual).

I've seen one just like what Chappy described. Because there is no kingpost like on a quicksilver/pterodactyl it makes it alot easier to "make your own small t-hangar."
