DeHavilland Dove with IO720s at sun n fun
It is pretty neat.Very cool
It is very rare that I see airplanes I had no idea existed, so thank you
Ok, now I see what threw me off - I've seen a Dove before, but with stock engines and tail.It is pretty neat.
Talked to the pilot a bit, it's a weird plane. Came with inverted supercharged 6cyls, this has the lycoming 720 conversion. No hydraulics, pneumatic gear and brakes, which are actuated by buttons on the yoke. The nosewheel is castering, with a strange looking tire that self centers it
It's the only one flying in the US, and one of four in the world (per the pilot)
Another refugee from the British aviation collection of mis-shapen aircraft. There must be a mandatory course in UK plane design schools in 'Ugly." Probably started with the Dragon Rapide (Only 3 still flying).It is pretty neat....It's the only one flying in the US, and one of four in the world (per the pilot)
No that was the TridentOh of course I'll like any post with the 1-11 in it! Wasn't that the bird with the off-centered nosewheel..?
That was it! What GREAT histories, to both birds. Love those rackets. Shame I wasn't born a little earlier :/
