Flymall Newsletter July/August 2014

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

We’ve been busy making some major changes to Flymall.org.  The Flymall is your one stop shop for all things wheels and wings.  One noticeable addition is the Classic Car Cruise In icon on our home page – you can click on this icon and it will direct you to our classic car cruise in page (http://flymall.org/magento/index.php/day-tripper/cruise-ins.html)  which has information on local cruise in events. From this page you can also access pictures of past cruise ins and car/motorcycle shows that we had attended .  We have also added a link on our home page to our forum http://flymall.org/bbs/ – here you will find reviews on aircraft, cars, motorcycles, RVs, and more. In addition you can post items for sale and wanted to buy items (in appropriate sub sections of the forum).

We have been selected by a local private airport owners group to liquidate/remove abandoned aircraft that have been sitting on their airports.  The paperwork process on these aircraft can take several months to clear with the FAA.  I have a partial list at http://flymall.org/magento/index.php/used-aircraft/abandoned-aircraft.html.  I will be updating this list as more come available. As the paperwork clears I will also list full details on each aircraft including numerous pictures and any paperwork or logbooks that are available.  These aircraft will sell a very low prices on a first come first serve order.

As many of you know we are also very interested in 3 wheel vehicles and we follow that market/industry very closely.  Here are a few “new to us” three wheelers that we found on the internet.  The Ter-O-Sno amphibious vehicle is a three wheeler that can go on land, in the snow, and in the water.

 

 

Here is another unique three wheels inline three wheeler.

Today in Aviation History
May 25, 1927: Lt. James A. Doolittle files the first outside loop in a Curtiss P-1-B pursuit plane at McCook Field. Starting at an altitude of 8000 ft Doolittle pointed the nose of the a/c down and describes a circle of 2000 ft diameter, leveling out at his original altitude. At the bottom of the circle, flying inverted, it is estimated that his a/c was traveling at 280 mph. The outside loop had not been previously attempted because of fear that the a/c would disintegrate. [Note: French pilot Pegoud is purported to have performed outside loops prior to this date.]
