You’re not wrong. One fails on a MU-2 at rotation and it’s not a easy day at the office. The TC is a lot better here. In fact, at SimCom I had my old piston “think” with me, which means clean her up as soon as possible to get any kind of climb out of it. Well, that’s when you make mistakes and shut down the wrong one or feather the wrong engine… It was a good lesson to just do nothing but climb until 1000ft, then identify and feather the right engine calmly.
Thanks for the great post AdamFrisch.
Real delight to read and follow along in pictures to share your subtle jibes. :)
Not entirely untrue. One can easily tow it onto a ferry.
Forgot about this thread.
Actually, it’s a little bit sad, because this plane doesn’t deserve to die or become a ramp mummy. It has a good paint job, clean interior and no visible corrosion. But as it sits today, there are big hurdles. And as time eats away at these things, my bet is it will probably just sit there for years until it’s even less desirable, with predictable results. My guess is she will not fly again. And the sellers won’t accept a price that would make her fly again.
The age old problem.
Well Adam, if you want a Rockwell which will keep you busy until well after retirement and flying it is not a precondition, then maybe this one might be of interest.
Nice Sabreliner, just misses a few tidbits like the engines and has not had maintenance in 18 years. But she could be a beauty and is a real bargain….
Sabreliners are actually certified for mild aerobatics (Utility Category). Must be one of the very few business jets that are, if not the only one. Commander legend Bob Hoover does his last ever roll in one in this clip:
I’ve engines available for an MU2. In case anyone wants to go for that RA reg one….
Why do you think the Reg is fake? Planty of RA-0**** regs around.
Here’s a Piaggio Avanti for example
