Yep I swear he was so low to the ground that I could see the heads of the cows in the field above the plane before he recovered it!

Show off...............

Cant wait till the next flight.....

Yea! You going to make that one Bob? Would be cool if bring down the Pedo van and show those Houstonites how to really throw down.

And no lame excuses about a tail wheel this time. I will run behind it holding the tail in the air if it means you will fly more than once!

I ordered a White Rose Engineering tail gear, I think when the tire came off, the axle dug into the wet ground and snapped the carbon gear. I should have it ready to go by the weekend.

Back in the Early 90's I knew a guy named Jason Somes. He was flying a 40%er of some sort with NO tail wheel. Squeeky damn thing. He wore it right down to the rudder in one short weekend. When I asked him what was up with the tail wheel. He simply said "What the Hell do you need a wheel for?"
