  1. The all composite Extra 330 is the highest performance certified aerobatic aircraft in the world with a maximum speed of 253mph and a load factor of +/- 10 G’s.

    I can’t say what went wrong, but something did.

    Sad, I know who it is.


  2. It is very difficult (usually not even close to affordable) to get a life insurance rider to cover you in a small plane.

  3. Very Sad i know them too… before they even purchased this property very nice people…
