"John Russman" 337 - $185,000

Who is John Russman? If he is "well known" in the 337 community, why have I never heard of him?

1975 337G down to $47,500

This is Chris Lopresti's plane. He had it listed for $60k awhile back. I think his father was Roy Lopresti, known as "Mr. Fast" in general aviation. Here is the Barnstormers ad:

Question Value of IO360-C/D plus props?

What is the going price for a mid-time IO360C and D (Front and rear)? Plus the props? Is the "D" worth more than the "C"? Value of props?

Thanks Herb, I definitely don't want to lose my camera! My understanding is that there are mounts that screw into existing holes on the airplane, such as inspection port holes? Is this correct?

Herb I think he means the throttle, mixture, and prop cable. But I could be wrong! As I tell my family, I'm always wrong on the 57th day! Extra points to anyone who gets that reference!

Exclamation 1967 O2B Skymaster "Saigon Express" up for no-reserve auction!

EDIT - I don't think this is a real O2B. The USAF serial number painted on it does not show up in the database. Also, I can see the spinner backing plate is still on the front prop. I'm no O2b...

I've had pilots argue that "grass is grass" i.e. every grass strip is the same. IMHO, this attitude comes from a lack of experience on grass. As Mr De Santis said, wet grass makes a big difference,...

Question GO PRO Video tips?

What you have to understand is the approach glide path and obstacles.

A 3 degree glidepath is about a 1:20 slope. So if you cross the 50' obstacle at 60', 60' x 20 = 1200'. You effectively have 600'...

IMHO, 50' obstacles at both ends render this strip unusable for Skymasters. Not saying its impossible, but its no way to run a railroad.
