Wednesday, August 28, 2013: Day 4 - Straubing-Salzburg
Today we had a great day in Straubing at the MT-Propeller factory. After an extensive tour of the blade manufacturing facility, the hub manufacturing facility, and the assembly plant, I am even more impressed with the MT-Prop. Talk about German engineering; there is no doubt that they build their props with pride and passion. In the words of Gerd Muhlbauer, President of MT-Propeller, "We turn horsepower into thrust efficiently". (Photo: Mike with Gerd Muhlbauer)

082813 N50ET on a wet ramp in Salzburg AustriaWe left Straubing at 5:30 PM for the short 70 mile flight into Salzburg in Austria. It was breathtaking flying in along the Austrian mountains into Salzburg. Tomorrow is an exciting day, we are going to spend the day at the Red Bull Hangar Museum. No flying for N50ET tomorrow--she gets the day off.
