Jeff just lifting off in his $80,000 Champ. You'd be hardpressed to find a Champ nicer than this one. This aircraft crashed in '64 when the pilot lost control and ground looped it.

80 Grand for a Champ? Mine is about the same as this one, not quite as shiney, worth about 30. Beautiful capture, though.

I think this is the story. The owner bought it for $20,000 some originally but soon found quite a few problems with it. They sent it back to the factory to be completely redone with a metal spar, wing tanks, even a GPS at the tune of about $60,000. I may have the story wrong, Jeff, if you see this go ahead and correct me.
