There is still a little new to talk about his Heinkel He 115 project. This is because we are still working to flush clean joints in the center section with hot water. This is a painstaking work that does not show any appreciable again for other than those directly involved in the job. The center section has been node that has carried a significant amount of the aircraft weight. Therefore, a part of the joints here very compact and compound. Obviously, this is a challenge for us in our efforts to flush out as much of the residual salts as possible, from these joints. So far, the experience of the work good, although it. as mentioned, in the center section, are some places we can not get to a proper flushing. That work is not a pleasure, may well most easily kept quiet up, but we do see the light that this will we be able to implement.

Ernst Knutsen made a breakthrough in the effort to seek out original technical Heinkel He 115 drawings. Creative leting of the Swedish National Archive war archives, has produced 104 engineering drawings and parts manual on 118 pages. Our friends in Sweden have already copied the material for us, and converted this to pdf format. If you open the attached link you can see an example of such a drawing. He 115 drawing

Our good friend Georg Krautz Johnsen has done a brilliant work of rebuilding the pilot's seat with associated equipment. The result is very good and includes a lot of original parts and some that Georg have reconstructed.
