Thanks guys

i have been building this for the last 10 years........we have had every nut and bolt out of her

the paint job is new, well about 3 years old now but she is still nice and shiny

hope to run the engines in the next month or so and fly her later this year if we can raise enough cash to pay for the fuel, oil and insurance.

thanks again

Hi Phil,

I take it she is still resident at Bruntingthorpe ??? We have met on a number of occasions, last time was at one of the open days last year, (I was the Tall bald bloke who you asked about Jeeps !!) we brought a Dodge weapons Carrier and my Jeep up and we spoke about some publicity shots for us both.

We are running a show in Cosby, Leics in September and I'd like to talk to you about this and the the photos if you are still interested. David Walton is helping us out with the berthing of some of the display aircraft we have coming to the show. If you'd like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact me via the pm.

By the way the Beech looks fantastic now its nearly finished, I remember seeing it when you were working between the two mobiles and the temporary roof in winter many years ago !!!! Credit to you and the team, well done.

Cheers Dave Pratt

very nice paintjob ;)

i bet that would be smoooth to fly, i have flown a plane that looked like that it was called a tomahawk,but im only 14 so i was with another pilot but i got to do every thing except for landing,and the reason i got to fly it was cause i am in the AirForceCadets which is like a pre-Airforce training thing...

anyway very nice plane :)
