Remarks: Overran Runway 5 on takeoff on April 26th. Eyewitnesses report that the aircraft was airborne before losing engine power and landing straight ahead into the grass. No injuries to the pilot, but the plane looks totaled. The landing gear sheared off, the prop is bent up, and the left wing is visibly damaged.
Remarks: Another new SX-300! This is the tenth SX I've photographed at Spruce Creek, almost a quarter of the worldwide fleet. Eighty kits for this high performance single were produced, but only 48 sets of landing gear were ever made. There are 34 finished SX-300s on the US register.
