    To add to what Steve said, 3x3 gear has a front leg that's forward of perpendicular to the fuselage, not 90 deg. What I'm seeing in the pic looks like 90 degrees. That may be 3" extended, but I'm...

    If I heard correctly, Mrs. Patey broke a nail. You gotta admit, that'll make a good story after some time passes. Thank God nobody was hurt, or worse.

    If I'm envisioning your wing correctly, you'd basically have to get new spars and a few new ribs, and rebuild to original configuration. I would definitely take it back out to stock span. Eight feet...

    Does it have tank strainers? A couple years ago a good friend went down in our old Breezy due to plugged tank strainers. He'd got a smokin' deal (free) on some avgas from an insurance claim, but put...

    The Sioux City incident was an incredible feat of pilot skills. I'm still amazed that anybody survived, considering the aircraft had essentially no flight controls.

    I resemble that remark.
    This was a busted tib/fib from 1983 on a Honda ATC 250r, along with plenty of liquid courage.

    That was my first thought also, but it's tough to get any useful depth in that video. With only 2 on board, they must've had a good load of cargo/gear. It took forever to break water.

    That's a lot more (8") than I expected. When I had my Borer (different mfg. I realize) bumped from 41 to 42, I'd swear the man at the prop shop said 3" was the cumulative limit. I'll have to call...
