The best part of that museum is that they do maintenance right on the display floor. I was there in the winter time once and they had the Lancaster partly taken apart with all sorts access panels and cowlings removed and one Merlin out of the plane on an engine stand.
how manly does your engine stand have to be to hold a loving merlin?

The NTSB is back up, but that link is outdated.


You can search by accident number, NYC08FA023, or goto this link: Things not to do as a pilot/builder
That's gonna be me some day. Because I recently learned there are ultralight/LSA planes that use a VW derived 2 cylinder boxer motor, which is about the same as an old BMW motorcycle engine, and I ride and work on those motors all the time. So now I have to put one in a plane. It was meant to be.

That seems to be a common occurrence in aircraft with forward lifting surfaces; the Piaggio Avanti exhibits the same tendency when flying in rain as well.
Piaggio? The scooter manufacturer?
