Glastar 2+2 with Lycoming IO 390

Monday, May 6th, 2013


Very new and just in the door is this ’08 completion Glastar (Experimental certification). On its nose is a Lycoming Experimental-spec IO 390 engine, 210 horse power rating with GAMI.

The aircraft is (was) on Montana amphib floats, one of which is especially damaged, one is intact.

Log books here, flown regularly prior to the incident.

Pietenpol project

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011


This is so just-in it’s more just in than the mostest just-in thing we have. It’s not even here yet (keep reading).

Pietenpol with an A-65 Continental engine. It was ground looped, you’ll have to trailer it home (and take off the wing before you do that) from its base in Liberal, Kansas.

We show 270 hours on the airframe, and 56 hours on the engine.

List of post ground-loop problems:

  • Propeller-one tip is splintered
  • Landing gear-sheared off
  • Left Rear Wing Strut-bent
  • Left Wing Strut Brace-bent
  • Flying Wires-Loose
  • Left Wing Fabric-torn on top of the wing where it attaches to fuselage
  • Left Aileron Outer Edge-fabric torn, wood scraped
  • Left Wing Tip-fabric torn, wood scraped
  • Wooden Fuselage-cracked in numerous areas

Okay, that’s the bad news, here’s the good news: $5,300 and you own it. All of it. Just go to the airport in Liberal, Kansas and pick it up.
