    Musketeers in July Flying Mag

    Hi all -

    My sharp eyes have discovered two references to Musketeers in the July Flying.

    The "Flashbacks 25 years ago" referes to a new Beech Sundowner, discussing what
    is obviously an Aerobatic version - as if the '80 model was the first of the
    'new' planes since the original. They quote 65% cruise of 109 K @ 8,000 ft -
    costing $39,350.

    But farther back in the magazine is a Richard Collins article on IFR with a
    'negative' image of a Sport parked next to a low control tower.

    The tail number is N2226L, and the records at the FAA show this was a 1977 Sport
    150, S/N MB-818, registered to Ari Ben Aviator, Inc. of Addison TX and shown
    destroyed January 3, 1992 at Bonham, Tx.

    The report says that a student pilot mushed into trees after a touch-and-go with
    a possible momentary power loss (carb heat?)

    Status: 1 Uninjured! Again, a stout bird saves a pilot from himself!

    When I had my 'power loss' forced landing June 1974 (the little Rolls Royce
    Continental ate itself alive) I had just finished reading a Richard Collins
    article on forced landings.

    His main point "YOU CANNOT EXTEND your glide."

    Best to all and a safe flying weekend!

    Musketeers in July Flying Mag

    Hi all,

    I had power failure in my sundowner twice on takeoff
    back in the 80s. Both were in Florida, high humidity,
    full power on the same day. The first one, I came
    fairly close to landing on a highway near greenlefe,
    but got a restart with carb heat. The second one was
    on leaving Fort Pierce for the islands. I was ready
    for it, but still had a power loss. Carb ice is not
    only on power reduction in a sundowner, it can happen
    anytime.
