Just finished this swing for my daughter. Saw multiple plans for plane swings, and since we're kind of attached to the C-130, figured we should make one of our own.
Should have taken pictures earlier. Main body is 1x6 with a 2x4 core. Wing is also 1x6.
Cut the top 2x4 to hang the swing from. Should help stabilize it so it swings straight.
Forgot to put the handle on, so I had to take the seat plank off to attach it.
My MacGyver method to sanding down the blocks for the engines. Worked well enough, need a belt sander.
Plain Air Force grey. Got an oak dowel for the handle and wanted to keep it natural.
Daughter thinks it's pretty cool, a little scared of it now. I expect she'll get more into it when she's older.
This came out great! Very creative.
