Tom Ivicevich adjusts the wing warp with an attached cable on his replica of a 1909 Wright Bros airplane he has been building for the past year. Out of a small hangar at the Redding, CA airport, Ivicevich and a few helping friends have built this airplane using a set of blueprints from the Smithsonian Institute. The place is powered by a Volkswagen Rabbit engine he got from a "pick and pull" lot. He hopes to fly the plane on the centennial of the first Wright Bros flight, December 17, 2003.
