Video – Flying the Curtiss Pusher

Posted by Michael June 27th, 2012 / No Comments

Kermit Weeks, founder of Fantasy of Flight, took an interesting test flight in a Curtiss Pusher.

After the flight Kermit said: “Talk about a blast… this thing is a bit on the scary side for the moment as it has no stability and you have to fly it ALL the time. I made three passes down the runway and eventually got above the tree tops until the crosswind got a bit much. I’ll continue to play with it when it’s calm and work up to actually going around the field!”
