Hi Lewis,
You going to try to make it to some of the local jet rallies this year ? I usually just show up and register at the event.

Hi Wayne
How are you? Hope all is well.
Yes, that's the plan. Also trying to attend First in Flight at the end of May in NC (and visit my kids down there at the same time). Plan is to also bring home a CARF Tutor (Snowbird scheme) after the event (hopefully there is room in the truck!)

Lewis, Jeff Lynds has the CARF Tudor so I understand your concern with it's size relative to the truck. I have a Yellow F-22 and what I do is open the rear window in the truck cab and the front window in the truck cap (hoping you have such a configuration) and slide the nose of the plane through the open windows into the truck cab. You'll have to rig up some supports across the truck bed to hold the rear of the fuselage.

Thank you.
The 'truck' is actually my wife's Ford Excursion diesel, which should be large enough (with the seats folded) for the Snowbird. I also have the laser cut fuselage cradle (from a fellow RCU member) which should help with transport; really well designed and built accessory.
If I'm lucky, I can fit the Snowbird plus the Turbinator at the same time...if not, then one stays home!
