  • Good shot I spent a couple years putting the plane into the plane as I used to call it. I could never get used to the visual when the tail is fully open it puts the Horizontal tail over the wing? Just a very unnatural view! And for those who have never seen it the tail is essentially driven open with a heavily modified very large forklift. Most unusual airplane I have ever had the chance to play with.
