Runway crash

This has nothing to do with Zenith, just a reminder of how bad things can happen.  I was called to ourairport this morning after a local pilot crashed his Bellanca Viking on the runway when the landinggear wouldn't come down and he broke the manual pump lever off trying to get it down. He did anamazing job of skidding it down the asphalt with very minimal damage other than prop strike andnow engine tear down.  After several hours via phone with the FAA he was given permission to movethe plane…See More

I heard there was somebody around building but my search failed. Received my 750 kit in mid  Feb. Rudder went quickly, and now about 90% done with horz stab. I called Hupe about hanger space and he said they didn't have any. Have you contacted a CFI yet?

I live about 5mi west of Wamego. I hope when I get experienced I will be able to land in my pasture. We should get together sometime. 785-617-0808.
