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.

Restored 1940s Northrop Flying Wing
This is a video of the Planes of Fame Museum's (Chino, California) Northrop
N9MB Flying Wing during a recent (March 2009) engine run-up of its
remaining serviceable engine. This aircraft was originally built as part of
the November 1941 contract that Northrop was awarded for four, 1/3-scale
aircraft, designated N9M, that were to act as flying test beds for various
flight systems for the full-size XB-35 flying wing program and also to
familiarize Air Force pilots with flying wing operations
This aircraft experienced an in-flight engine fire in 2006 in its left, 300
hp., 8-cylinder Franklin 0-540-7 engine. The Flying Wing has since been
totally restored, but the restoration of the rare Franklin 0-540-7 engine
is another matter. There were only about 27 of these engines ever built
and it is believed that only three of them exist today. The needed parts
will need to be newly manufactured as necessary, but the museum has
committed to getting this aircraft back in the air. Common parts from a
12-cylinder Franklin engine are already being scavenged to help in the
restoration. The flying scenes in this video were taken just before the
engine fire. Progress towards flying staus is well on its way and this
aircraft will definitely once again fly, no doubt!

Electric VW Experiment - home made motor control
This was my first attempt at becoming free of the ever rising cost of gas.
It worked, but I could never get more than a trip to town and back on a
single charge. The motor I used and my crude controller were not efficient
enough. I discovered veggie oil and bought a diesel car, so this one is
just sitting for now. It was a fun project, and with a 40 horse motor, I
could take off REALLY fast!
Carbon Cub Kit - Wing Static Test (Ultimate)
http://www.cubcrafters.com - The test you see here is what the aircraft
structure would withstand when the airplane's speed is increased to
redline, pulled up quickly to a 6G pull-up, and the aileron is fully
deflected... all at the same time. The rear spar is typically the weak
link in this test, as there is tremendous load applied to the outboard rear
spar when the aileron is deflected. Yakima, WA - 7.21.2008
