My Plane Been Found


Hi Everyone,

Last Sunday I got a call from one of Macs neighbors. Said he went fishing and all he caught was a plane!!! Plane landed next to a pond on his farm. I don't have it yet, but here's a picture he sent to me. Look like the cows danced on the wing, but the fuselage looks ok. Happy days are here again!!!!

Awesome, Ric! Have you looked at Google Earth or Maps to see where that pond is? Wonder how far it actually went...

+1 Be interesting to see the distance....prolly not as far as Diggs has done, but I bet it will still be impressive!

About a mile.
I say it orbited the earth once, then targeted Mac's from the upper stratosphere. Only missed by a mile!

Maybe Ric confused the uptime from 10 minutes to 10 months...

batteries though!

I'd say those batteries are toast! Still waiting for the guy to call and get it back.

All leading edges are built with foam, kevlar, and carbon. If a cow did not stand on them, I'm hoping to rebuild the wing. Fuselage looks good. We'll see.

Trying to find a "before" picture.

Thanks Barry, but that's my Class B ship. This one is an RES Class A. I'm still looking.
