Boelkow Bo 208 Junior, N208J, S/N 668
I am Dick Eddinger and I just bought a 208 Junior a few days ago and I only know what I have found out about it on the internet. Thank God for this computer. I kind of stumbled on your web sight. Of course I am trying to find all I can about my 208 and others. I am located in the United States in the State of California. I live between San Francisco and Sacramento, the State Capitol. Maybe you can tell me how many 208's are over here as I heard there might be one in San Diego, California, and one in Live Oak, Florida which belongs to Wolfgang and Christine Schmelzer. I got the information about Wolfgang from your web site and I will try to contact him.
Are there parts available? I think I am going to need a new front section of the canopy as mine has a couple of stop drilled cracks in it. I also heard there is some kind of safety cable or modification to insure that the canopy stays shut during flight. My 208 is serial number 668 present tail number is N208J. It was orginally D-EGXI. Do you know any history on it?
Attached is a picture of N208J.
Thank you for any information, assistance, and help you can provide.
