I purchased my Hawker Sea Fury Kit, Seidel Prop & Moki S250 gas engine on June 19, 2013. Sawbones has made 11 flights totaling 88 minutes. Dustin Buescher Flew the test flight on April 3, 2014. Greg Foushi has been the Sawbones pilot on the other 10 flights. It's worth noting that I have approximately $25,000.00 invested in the Sea Fury.
I patterned my Sea Fury after Robin Crandall’s wonderful Sawbones. Robin is a practicing Orthopedist (hence the name Sawbones) as well as an accomplished pilot. Robin flies Sawbones from his home base in Blaine, MN to Reno to compete in the National Championship Air Races.
Sawbones was invited to attend Top Gun in 2014 (rained out), 2015 (Finished 4th in Team Scale), 2016 (Finished 5th in Unlimited).
