These horrifying back to front aerries ..... why in the world did we ever build and or fly them. Must have been out of my mind. But then again it is a safe and easy flyer. ;-) ;-) ;-)

So, cvh, are you planning a get together or a fly-in for these weird scary aircraft?
I fly when the birds fly - they know when it's safe.
