F.8L Falco, N290

Sold to David Mottram in the UK December 2007


This is a very unusual situation. Ralph Moore is an engineer at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and an experienced homebuilder. He scratch-built his Falco, and first flew it in 1998, but he is a quiet sort of guy and never bothered to tell us.

In any event, Ralph has had a couple of heart attacks, has lost his medical, and is getting out of aviation. Very reluctantly, because he loves his Falco.

We hope to have some photographs of this ASAP.
