Way Way off topic L39 GXT

I just got my latest hop up project flying and had to share. To all my Mac peeps, this is the result of 18 months of hard work

Just like cars, you take a bunch of weight off a plane and wow what a difference.

Thanks for letting me post this.

That was breaking ground before mid-field on a 4000' runway. L39s just do not do that.

Very cool. Buddy of mine at United flew L-39s in air shows for some years...Randy Howell, Patriots Jet Team. Really looks like a fun airplane.

There is no hope for me. I'm just a mechanical nerd.

The pool at the hangar is wether the guy in the plane looks more like Bevis or Butthead.

I'm thinking Butthead
