Thursday afternoon I got a call telling me the 206 was done at Sunquest, so I prepared to go the next day to pick it up. The trip up there was pretty uneventful which is always a good thing in the flying business.
After looking over the newest Kodiak paint job, I pre-flighted the 206 and taxied out for run-up. Right mag...check. Left mag...no dice. After taxiing back to troubleshoot the mag the problem could not be reproduced after pulling off the cowling. I taxied out and took off for a late lunch at Tacoma Narrows. I highly recommend Narrows Landing for lunch! Very good service and food. Before taking off I managed to get a photo with the new 206 paint scheme just outside the restaurant.
481P is a new bird. The hardware is new, many of the "character" dents were taken out, and to be honest I think it flys a little faster too ;) Next up is to get the Servant Wings logo on the tail.
