Weitere Informationen / More information
Amateur-built aircraft, after a 1962 design by Peter Bowers. One of around 500 constructed. Originally flown in Canada and brought to Europe in 2014.
The aircraft can do loops and rolls and is a lot of fun to fly. With a 60 knot cruise speed it is very SLOW though. In 2016, the flight from Hilversum (The Netherlands) to Hahnweide took me nearly 6 hours of flying time and three stops. Good fun!
