Anniversary (short story)

Recommended Posts


One year ago today while visiting Washington DC to check out Space Ship One display, I made the trip to the Udzar-Hazy Air and Space Museum and I came across a funny looking airplane parked on its nose (Burts N4EZ). After reading the storyboard at the display about homebuilt airplanes I felt this sudden pain in my rear end, turns out it was me kicking myself. I had always wanted to own an airplane but could never remember where I left my bag of cash to buy one so it has always been out of reach. When I got home that night from the museum I went straight to the confuser and started looking for canard aircraft and quickly found the "Unofficial Cozy........." what in the world is a "Cozy" I thought.

Well, to keep a short story short, I am currently working on chapter 7-8-9 of my own Cozy (#1418) and just wanted to say thank you to everyone here and all the other forums, boards and lists for all the information made available and to publicly thank Marc Z. for giving me my first ride and letting me take control of his plane at Oshkosh this year. Passing a C172 at 170mph makes me feel better about not being able to buy a production plane :). If I only knew 10 years ago what I know now........well, you know the rest of the story. Thank you again folks

Hmm... sounds vaguely familiar, although I wouldn't have been able to word it as well. Glad to hear you're making great progress. Feel free to post a pic to show off your work if the feeling hits you right.

It is truly a sin to build a plane in a shop that has that much room. You make us all sick. I trip over stuff and nock things off the wall all the time. I am trying to figure out where I can install a cutting board for my fiberglass I need the other end of my table. Steve
