    Good news...Red 7 is now back in the air !

    Unfortunately, I dont speak or understand German but it would appear that following a lot of work since the last incident, She's now back in the air where she belongs !.

    It says that on 19 February the aircraft took to the air for the first time since its belly landing on 15 April 2008. The aircraft again however had problems with the landing gear but the pilot Walter Eichhorn was able to land the aircraft safely without damage.

    Walter Eichhorn was also the pilot that brought her down on her belly in April of last year.
