Jason, I have checked out most of FlyingPooch's back country videos. Do you know how he had his mishap with the Stinson?

Yes, he's a good friend of mine and we've discussed it. I have several photos as well...and I'm actually going to give him the old crunched up tail once I decide I have all the stuff off of it that I need as a memory for his hangar.

It was at Mile High in Idaho, and simply put, Charlie is a little nose heavy and he had to get on the brakes (new double pucks and 31's) a bit more than normal and with the speed, etc, it went over on it's back. I've pulled some weight off the nose and still working on a bit more...and weight overall to be honest. Once I get it back together will update with a new W&B and see where I"m at and if I need to move anything or add ballast, trying not to.
