This aircraft was restored to full flight condition and was certified by the agency for the Heritage aircraft.

But...this aircraft CRASHED in 1997, I believe, during an airshow. It flipped upside down while landing and the pilot was stuck in the cockpit.

The pilot refused to be rescued by the Jaws of Life because he didn't want to further damage the plane.

While there was a risk of explosion due to fuel leak, it took full 2 hours to get the pilot out.

By the way, its good to see this baby in its restored condition.

of course crash......109 is hard to handle when landing.

Yes, but that's not really why it flipped. He was experiencing engine problems and had to put it down in a plowed field I believe. Any time you go wheels down into a soft surface like that, they'll dig in and flip you.

They THOUGHT there was an engine problem (cooling system was burping) and pilot rushed a landing attempt and overshot Duxford eastbound, landed and flipped on other (east) side of highway. Strangely enough, this was supposed to be Black Sixes final flight and there was a big push for signatures on a petition to extend flight ops (from the original five years) because they thought they could continue their perfect wreck free record indefinately. Really, what were the odds? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
