RE: Bird strike

The repair work on the “Wild Thing” has started. The engine and the wind screen have been taken off and the aircraft looks rather sad like that.

I am looking forward to finishing the tail wheel endorsement next spring!

To be continued…

Bird strike

Bird strike

A bird brought down my beloved “Wild Thing” and brings my tail wheel endorsement to a sudden halt! Fortunately nobody was hurt – except for the bird, that is…

The pilot, who flew the plane, is a flight instructor with a lot of experience on the “Wild Thing”. He could land it safely on a field.

Unfortunately the aircraft was damaged quite severely. Until it is repaired, I will not be able to finish the training on the tail dragger.

To be continued…
