Busted the tail and wings up, when I downed the tree to get at it.

Oh well. I think that plane is just too big and underpowered for my field. I will have to repair it and try it on a larger field.


Sooo sorry to hear this! Sounds like we have all had our problems lately.

Fortunately, I had a fabulous time at lunch flying the Mustang at Cherry Creek field. The weather couldn't have been nicer, we had a north wind, and there were lots of pilots with planes that the Mustang could shoot at. Fun!!! I even was able to get some shots in on a two-stroke P-40 that was cruising around the field. The Mustang is marginally slower but by cutting the corners I was able to keep up.
