Tibor's continued flights with his Mitchell wing U2
Watch Tibor's 2:nd thru 4:th flights. After 3 not very good landings, and
after replacing the damaged tail-wheel, he finally figured it out. In the
evening, Carl is filming the U2 close-up from his B10. The day ended with a
perfect landing at sunset.
