The previous look.

Enlarge photo 57
A severe storm knocked a wall against the tail at Billy Carter's place Spring of 2018 (and caused damage throughout the Mocksville area). He fixed the vertical stabilizer and rudder. Both elevators are new old stock (he rebuilt them). The horizontal stabilizer was one he had rebuilt to use on his own project Stinson.

Accidents happen, that's what insurance is for. An unusually strong storm for sure.

Right stab and elevator took the brunt of it. This was a Piper type elevator with the V ridge look. The replacement is an original (see the first photos).

Wall had tilted onto top of the tail.
