.. rumour has it that she will be out of the air at the end of this year. There is just not enough demand for her to cover all the costs that seem to increase each year. So now is your chance, if you want to get some tail dragger time in let me know and I will put you in contact with the appropriate people!

Hopefully, if she is retired, she will be continuing to enjoy pride of place in the hangar our museum built for her.

That looks much like the model I built back in 1992. It had a wingspan of twelve feet, weighed 45 pounds, and had two 42cc engines. Here's a screen capture from an old video.
