We are lucky enough to have Nine-O-Nine come near here to New Smyrna Beach airport (NSB) for maintenance. This year we had the added bonus of having the B-17 Aluminum Overcast (EAA's I believe) down there on tour at the same time. So a CFI buddy of mine and myself hauled ourselved down there in a 172 to see what's doing, and even though we had to switch planes (POH was absent) and ended up there after the 'tour' officially closed, they were gracious enough to let us tour the beauties ourselves.
Inside the hangar they also had the F-4 Corsair that Dale Snodgrass had done a belly landing in at the same airport. Collins son had ditched the F-4 off the coast back in 97 after running out of fuel. Several years and lots of money later, Snodgrass took the Corsair up at NSB without retracting the gear. All's fine. Then 2 days later he takes it up again for some airwork. Right gear won't go down. Retract and try again. No luck. Bounce the bird off the runway on the left main to try and shake the right loose. No joy. So, gear up, engine off and lay it down on the gull wings. Excellent job, no choice, but now that tragic bird is being rebuilt yet again.
