1- Where in Fl was that crash???
2-I can't believe they are doing this plane... I am very disapointed. They had so many GA choices to choose from...

Well, it's not a Mosquito but I think it'll end up in my hangar as long as it's small enough with the wings removed to fit in the hatchback of my New Beetle!

If not... well... this may just be the last reason I need to justify a small SUV

The outline is quite similar (thought the tail is entirely different), but this looks a world better than the one from Cox.

Beautiful plane. I'll bet it looks and flies great! Myself I'm going to wait for another warbird though.
