    I. Prices something right away from one of the photos. The control bar appeared to be disconnected and the wing struts and leading edges both appeared to be unbent and unbroken. This suggests the A frame may have been disassembled before impact. The ...

    Larry Mednick Stuck throttle in the back of a students trike today with an 18 MPH 90 degree xwind. Had to shut it down and dead stick it in. Was slightly concerned with the xwind so I took a taxi way and landed into the wind. Better safe than sorry.
