Tim - I do not like thunderstorms or lightning, I am eager to hang the rebuilt engine on and fly!

Glenn - the story is pretty much explained by a few pics in my photos.

Hi David - 

With your multiple UL "experiences", lightening is striking 2, 3, 4(?) times at the same location!  Your airplane is gorgeous, I am glad you and it are OK.  Tim

David,

So glad that you landed safely!

I have been following your engine pics. and there seems to be a story to tell here.

I am officially scared....

Dan - me $$ too!

Clint - It did long enough to get me where I needed to go!  Not quite 1 minute and 50 secs before zero RPM, though steadily slowing and winding down until about the last twenty seconds.

Shawn - ditto!!

Little engine put up quite a fight!  Glad you and your plane will get a chance to fly another day
