Aircraft Accident, Brake Failure - Glasair Crash - Cockpit View Plane Crash
CONTAINS LANGUAGE NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER VIEWERS.
The Glasair has no nose wheel steering... only differential braking.
Rudder effectiveness degrades rapidly as the aircraft slows below 70 MPH.
Full left rudder was applied throughout this incident.
The airplanes brake line ruptures and the plane is pulled to the right. I
wasted time pumping the left brake thinking their must be air in the line.
To avoid a runway light, the right brake was tapped just as we exited the
pavement. My plan was to allow the plane to slow in the grass, after
passing the culvert I would use the right brake to come to a stop ... the
unseen erosion gully modified that plan.
This Glasair is powered with a six cylinder 202 cubic inch Subaru SVX
Alcyone EG33 engine. We were in route to an air race in Tennessee when
this overrun occurred. We won "Silver" in the Sport Air Race League 2011

Regular Car Reviews: 1992 Subaru SVX, Part 2
This is a car for people who sill want to use an Amiga computer. Go back
and watch Part 1 if you didn't yet. As good as this car was, it never sold.
Why would you buy this in 1992 when you could have a Corvette C4 for almost
the same price? Because you have taste and you like your hot dogs with
mustard and not ketchup.

Take a ride among the clouds, set to the music "God Bless America". This
Glasair is powered with an experimental Subaru SVX EG-33 automible engine.
To avoid IFR traffic, we always get a "block airspace clearance" from the
controller prior to cloud dancing.
Regular Car Reviews: 1992 Subaru SVX, Part 1
This is the most Un-Subaru Subaru (Part 1). The SVX stands on the vanguard
of unsung 90's cars. It's a flat-6, all wheel drive, low, sleek sports
car...that was a commercial flop because in the 1990's Subarus were known,
in America, as cars for people who ambushed you at Circuit City with
petitions calling for "People Should Be Nice To Me." PART 2 :
