steve Posted March 22, 2004 Share Posted March 22, 2004 was at the airport and got a chance to talk to the pilot of the now not so hot cozy. i didn't see him go in but was by the radio when the call when't out to clear the run way.witnesses saw a slow climb and didn't think he was going to make it, he then turned back to the runway they said.(there was a plane taking off so it looked like he opted to fly down wind lag and get a shot at the north end,he turned base sharp,nose droped they said. he over shot final,turn back to field and carrer landed it on the pavment,and rolled off on to the grass(i guess there's grass down there)a cfi said. they closed the run way but no debrie was found. 1 hour later after my ground test(72%)i saw him driving away with plane in toe so i stoped him and he said he was ok. he let me get some pic. of him and the plane.i'll up load them shortly. he said after the crash 2 weeks ago(nose gear not out all the way}the engine was running hot so he rejeted it.after take off it ran badly."i guess it was to rich" he said. Iasked him if the taxi test was ok,but he didn't do one. Quote Steve M. Parkins Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
