Airbike Ultralight

This airplane is an airbike ultralight, built in one week for less than $20 it flies like a real ultralight; very slow. Zenoah G38 powered, 21 pounds

Two new planes from Willie

Antique Model Bleriot

Willie Says, "This is the beginning of World War 1 type planes. I had a cartoon of this plane from Hannah hanger. I made the plans to build the plane from the cartoon. Then went ahead and built the whole plane out of foam board. Works great! Also, flies great. It has a 22" prop. The hinges are stitched like the old planes. Take a look at the cylinders on this baby. It's a 1912 blerriot . It even looks old."

P-51 Mustang

Willie Says, "P-51 Bud Nolsen kit with Quadra 50 engine. I'm still working on it. Its 36 lbs and breaks lot of landing gear."

Fly Baby

1/2 scale Fly Baby. Weighs 90 lbs.

The Early Days

Willie says, "1989 still learning to fly. Ben had a lot of time on his hands. He put me on the, super hight intensity trainning, called shit program, he give me all the shit i could take, in the end his shit program was worth while. These were the early days."

Aeronca Champ and Pylon Tower

Willie's Aeronca Champ with a G38 Zenoah gas engine. Also shown, another product from the Willie skunkworks workshop - multi-purpose pylon tower!




Two Other Planes

Two more from Willie: The white plane is a Fly Baby with a Quadra 50 gas. The red army plane is a L-19 Bird Dog with a 9-foot wing and weighs 18 lbs - another Willie crash repair special.


Repaired Skybolt

When Willie showed me this thing it was a basket-case. All of the parts could pass through a 1-foot hoop. I'm not even sure it was all there! Somehow he managed to make it into this beautiful plane. Amazing.
