Default Seen a American Eagle B-24???

RandallM,

Not familiar with any B-24 kits but those specs seem very good. At <35 lbs the plane should be very easy to fly. Good luck.

Default Seen a American Eagle B-24???

My Grandfather flew and was downed in a b-24 in yugoslavia in '44. 15th AF, 450th BG, the Cottontails. He never spoke of this while he was alive, and it was only last fall that I managed to find a surviving member of the crew and the family was able to learn the story. Researching his story, and of course his plane got me wanting very badly to build a flying replica of his b-24, "True Love". But first i have to learn to fly, picking a trainer now. While I am years away from building or flying this amazing plane, it is my ultimate goal. My question is this, what sort of learning pattern should I follow to work up to a four engine like the b-24?

There have been so many replies on this forum that I forgot who asked what!

I, too, love the B-24 and have a Stafford kit that flies beautifully.

I'd build a bigger one in a heartbeat if our field was big enough.

I've never read about a bad flying B-24 kit or plan....only heard good things.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this but you can get a video of the American Eagle B-24 taking off, flying, and landing. I have it and it seems to fly very well.

After reading these threads I think I've figured out the B-24 I have was made by bomber boys. It's all glass with foam wings at 110". If you lay the parts over the Palmer plans it's almost an exact match. I bought the palmer plans to get the correct nacelle spacing ect. I got this thing through a trade 11 years ago. Are they still being made? Bob

I don't know about the B-24, but I built the Spitfire. It just included a fiberglass fuselage, foam wing, canopy, abs plastic items, and templates with simple plans. I don't think that any of the American Eagle kits come with wood or hardware.

You might just give Bob a call.
