Wohoo, we crossed the fundraising two thirds mark!! I'm so grateful to all of you for the support 'Taking Flight' is getting!
Here is a little update on where we are in the building process, the wheel hubs Van Bebber Steel is fabricating for us turned out absolutely beautiful, a work of art in itself... The wings and tail are tacked together, and we are working on the internal frame of the bird's skeleton right now, so we can proceed to shaping her body, head and legs while Van Bebber is rolling the wheels and constructing the base frame.
The biggest challenge at the moment is getting the lighting design finalized and some additional help to implement the plan as our amazing lighting consultant has a work overload for the next couple of months, which means we need to recruit some additional help and expertise of lighting programmers and installers. If you know of anyone who might be interested in lighting up 'Taking Flight' please direct them our way. We of course also need to keep pushing to reach the fundraising goal, so please keep spreading the word.
Thank you all so much for your continued support!!
Nicki and the Flight Crew
