Air and Space Museum by
Some asked when the new Air and Space Museum at Dulles is going to open. I was in the Teminal the other day and they have a poster up with a picture and the opening date of Dec 15, 2003. The picture on the poster looked amazing. http://www.nasm.edu/nasm/ext Ron

Oshkosh 2005 pictures up by
Alright, I realize that Oshkosh is so very last week, but with my drive home to Southern California and going back to work it's taken me until now to weed through all 1992 pictures I took. I weeded them down to 539... obviously not all of them are interesting but at least they're broken up into...

Continental A-65 Price by
Hey all, I'm starting a homebuilt project (obtained partially completed) and was wondering what kind of price I'm looking at for a Continental A-65 with a couple hundred hours left on it. How about an overtime engine? Thanks, -Tony

So Cal Aviation Boneyards by
Hey guys and girls, A friend and I would like to crawl some junkyards for inspiration, possibly parts that catch our eye, and frankly because we really want to. Are there still places around (let's say within a couple hours' drive of the LA area) that will let you wander and rummage? We're not...

nissan 3.5 liter by
Hello, Has anyone looked at this engine for use on a plane? It looks to me like it might have possibilities. It's used in a bunch of different vehicles with different outputs from 240hp all the way up to 287hp due to different exhausts, intakes and computers (I think). Anyway the stats as...

Curtiss Pusher Model D by
A couple friends and I are planning to build a 1911 Curtiss. We acquired plans from the Curtiss Museum a number of years ago and hope to finally get started soon. While the plans are quite detailed in some ways, there are many things that are not specified. Even the type of wood used is not...

Wing in ground effect by (blank)
Can anyone lead me to a homebuildable WIG? I know Universal Hovercraft has plans for a wing attachment to one of their kits, but that's not what I'm after. I have found a towable glider, and that has promise, but I'd rather not re-invent a wheel that's already out there. Thanks. MH

cheap, durable, homebuilt aircrafts- myth or truth? by -=:|SAJAN|:=-
