Boeing #307B Stratoliner

This aircraft was built in the winter of 2006-07. Has 180" wingspan, about 1/7th scale, powered with Zenoah G-26's. Has homemade retractable gear. Weighs in at about 91 lbs. First and second flights were on April 20, 2007. Plane handled well although quite underpowered.

May 2nd 2007. 3 more flights today bringing the total to 8. All went quite well as plane seems very stall resistant.

This replica was modeled after one of I believe only 15 built by Boeing around 1940. This particular plane was done up in TWA livery with a false serial number for a sales trip.

Sept 2007- Plane totaled 34 flights for the year with only one incident at WOD. Damage was slight and the pilot of that flight shall remain unnamed.
