Eric really loved this plane. One day, after flying for several minutes, he took it way up to see how many spins he could do. He was also quite far out, and other planes where in the air. After 20 spins he pulled out. Then he pulled up. Stall! What happens when the plane is pointed down for too long with half a tank of fuel? The fuel clunk is in the air, not in the fuel. The motor had gone dead-stick, but Eric was too far away to hear it with the other planes in the air. By the time he realized it, he was too low to glide back. The plane went in. A three hour search found the plane. I repaired it, but not to its original beauty. Although it flew several more times, it just wasn't the same to Eric. So he stripped it and bought the P51 FunTiger. But that wasn't the same either. He sold that and bought the Giles 202. Alas! He has a new love.
