    Is the guy in the back of that Sikorsky S38 pulling the anchor in?

    Delmar and Steve Wolf both said the plane was built exact to original as possible, lacking the actual plans. New England Air Museum allowed them to document their build of the R1 by measurements/photos/etc., but could not allow the two access to plans per agreement with the Granville family.
    Delmar was emphatic he wanted an authentic Sportster.
