Anyone here fly one, flown one or just have stories to tell about
one? I heard an eccentric millionnaire who flew one went missing some
years ago.

I fly a Spencer Aircar, cousin to the Seabee. There are several good
sites dedicated to the Seabee including http://www.republicseabee.com/
AND Steinars hangar site at http://www.seabee.info/ Both sites have
good articles on adventures in the 'bee

I've got a friend who has one. I've "flown" it once. Flies like it
looks, quite slow and heavy. The trim on the other hand is quite
responsive (learned that one a bit abruptly).

It's interesting (and somewhat frustrating) that we STILL haven't heard any
definitive cause of the crash of the Spencer S12D Aircar (a homebuilt
derivative of the Seabee) that occured here in Iowa over a year ago, killing
a friend of ours.

The NTSB website still only shows the "preliminary" report that says little
more than "the plane went down".

There's also a little blurb about the crash on this site (scroll down to
"N41RH"), but nothing new: http://www.seabee.info/seabee_news_2007.htm

I've never seen a final report so slow in coming.
