I will add here some NTSB reports on Bede-% accident as I find them:



  1. Hi all, I was just getting hooked in this little design project, but now it seems that the author of this blog is more interested in real planes like the BD5 than his wannabe kitplane. Too bad, this has been a real treat to read.

  2. Sorry I think I needed some motivation and searhed these for your enjoyment.

    But hold on I have just given this link to very prominent testpilot to look at and to give me comments.

    He has flown over 50 types with near 9 000 hours logged. I just talked to him on the phone.

  3. ...and thanks for the nice words...a wannabe kitplane...I love it !
