Efforts Heinkel He 115 the project has now started up again after a long summer. Still working with Heinkel He 115 project hampered by us since January been ruled by the Armed Forces Museum is in a process where they will consider future ownership of equipment that is lent on landfill agreements. We therefore still some temporary some restrictions on the work of Heinkel He 115 project.
We will now proceed to clarify the parts to be used in the new Heinkel 115 exhibit of that work is underway. This exhibition will be in a separate room next to the place in the hangar where both cockpit section, abdomen, and the motor is placed.
It will also throughout the winter to be the work of creating and installing the piping for hot air in the cockpit section.
Summer is here, and it felt good at the activity level of the project that there now are other things that will be focused on than working with plane. It is also the season for major events and cockpit and nose section was recently transported to Sola Airport and exhibited in connection with the major air show where. We we also make a exhibitions around Heinkel project in connection with the Wings and Wheels event in seaplane harbor.
Although the project He 115 was reasonably full when it was raised in 2012, we lack, of course, a whole range of parts. We hope now that it will be possible to get made an exhaustive survey of the Heinkel He 115 parts located at the bottom of Adhesion. It is therefore now both taken an initiative towards the local environment which is engaged in gluing plane and towards the environment in 2012 raised our fly from Hafrsfjord. Further investigation and a possible raising of the parts of Adhesion depends on a permit to work with plane, and we will continue the dialogue with Forsvarsmuseet about such a permit.
We will take this opportunity to wish everyone a summer.
Roar Henriksen believes that he needs challenges when he is not on Musset and working with Heinkel He 115 project. He has therefore included the few parts that we found the pilot's stick in cockpit home in own garage, and started on the extensive work it is to reconstruct the steering column. As shown by the attached photos are the work now well underway.

So, spring is finally on its way to becoming the fall and we will soon be ready to resume work on Heinkel He 115 project. We will continue where we left off to prepare for water washing of joints and other joints in the center section and the outer wing panels.
It has ila. summer been some technical problems with this website, that we, in cooperation with the supplier of the web hotel, now hope to have solved. We thank all of those at home and abroad who have sent us requests when the page has not been available.
We have a need for a large yard- and warehouse where we can preserve, and later save the major components such as center section and wing. Torkel Tan Jorgensen began therefore fall 2013 on the great work of building a roof over concrete tub.
Through some of the Friendship Society many connections we got cheap access to much of the materials as needed. Torkel put the whole winter outside the hangar and adapted and welded large square tube. spring 2014 he had ready finished trusses to the large roof. 14. May the roof trusses lifted into place.
Torkel continued working on the roof throughout the spring and summer and 2. July it was clear that he and Kjell Dahle could begin the work to lay in place plates and complete roof.
