yup er FUN!
The learning curve keeps it fresh!
I keep thinking success breads success.
Kinda like the little train, I think I can...
Having some confidence is comfortable, but
the heart rate still goes up every flight!
A variety of goals over the last four years, are just a start! Chris

Why does the Wild cat have a tail wheel except for looks.

So you can have something to break off on those not so smooth landings.

The paint is wearing off the bottom of my tail wheel. I guess it can serve as a "flair" detector !

The tail wheel is left over from when they made the old FW190. The FW190 mold wore so much it became the F9F and the only part of the mold not worn was the tail wheel. Now if you believe this let me sell you something.

F9F?

The Panther? Not the Wildcat?

This is a fun thread. I can't wait to pick mine up. I have read a little complaint about tip stall. As I will be flying one for the first time soon are there any members of the thread sober enough to give a little consideration and reply? The rest of you can just carry on!

Rick, at this point you are advised to indulge in a drink. A nice stiff one.

A drink?

Yes, you reflect, the words start a new, and in many ways interesting, train of thought.

A drink?

And a nice stiff one?

There might be something in it..........

Not now. I am indulging in an exercise required by my school district called a PGP (personal growth plan).
I would rather touch up the paint on my much loved Corsair.
