This Cherokee has an engine failure in flight and pilot managed to put her on the ground, but ran into a ditch on the roll out, which bent the nose gear leg and dinged the nosebowl

Whilst I have the last set of logbooks, there is no engine or prop/spinner or LG legs, wheels or brake units - just the LG castings attached to the spar

Other missing parts = avionics, instruments, rudder, trim unit in tailcone (Brackets are there)

Fuselage mostly complete, with vertical fin and top fairing plus rudder top fairing, all seats (need recover), door, latches, flap handle with cover, control wheels, rudder pedals with pilot side brakes, throttle quadrant with levers, centre console, all glass panels usable, tailcone fairing halves
EF38FED1-A484-4178-8744-F8EAA641529E.jpeg
Both wings have the fuel tanks (with caps!), flaps and ailerons (1 aileron has a small split in T/Edge), plus wing tips. Main spar attach brackets look good on visual inspection, but the leading edge and trailing edge attach brackets do show some Corrosion = will need to be de-riveted and replaced

Stab is complete with trim tabs and both tips, flaps, wing & stab tips plus 1 aileron

Engine mount and nose-bowl both slightly damaged, with both top and bottom cowling halves in good shape

This project would probably suit a flight school with a fleet of Cherokees as a parts donor

Hi Uncle Ray

Tx for the Nice photo :D

In my album 👍

That is where she should be

Looks a little sad now, but perhaps somebody could refurb her and get her back there - or her parts will keep another you get lady in the sky ?
