    It's a shame as she is such a nice looking bird. Thankfully everyone is OK.

    Good to hear there were no casualties. Looks like it might be a tough repair depending on where the landing gear tore away as the wing strut attached to it.

    Terry, she has been flying for 5-6 years now after a very lengthy (25 yrs or so) rebuild.

    Time flies, it seems like only a year or so ago it was posted by Neil (the late PB Foot) and shown in 'Fly Past' magazine !

    Hate to see them go down because, as you guys know, it's not like they are making more. Glad everyone is safe.

    Beautiful bird, glad no one hurt but was hoping it would come back to Oshkosh again soon but probably not now.
