Does not look right seeing an aircraft with a "Training Wheel" on it in your hangar.

There's a reason they call it the prototype. They fix those mistakes during production.

Paul - nice "hangar ornament". Perhaps you should hang it from the rafters.

Talking Oooooooo nice

Maybe if you just close the door they'll forget where they left it and take the bus home.

It's not a mistake at all, but we do go ahead (most of the time) with the designing the tail dragger for all of the pilots that need a physical confirmation of their masculinity....

Thanks for giving the airplane a safe place to bed down Paul (and Louise).

Ha, ha!

I don't recall seeing any of those who prefer their "physical confirmation of masculinity" having to replace cracked front nose struts or rolling up the nose wheel on landing though. Never seen a tailwheel on an RV go flat either... just sayin .

You are welcome to park the 14 in my hangar at 7S3 anytime as well. Just leave the keys in it.

(where's the sarcasm emoticon ?)
