2006: Damage to left landing gear side brace rib during tight, high speed turn. Rib replaced and braced in consultation with kit manufacturer.

PLEASE NOTE: This aircraft was built to fly from the right seat. It was built so a pilot could have the stick in his right hand and throttle quadrant in the center. This is how every fighter plane has ever been built and is much more natural to fly.
