    Jim Moss did. Interesting story with a sad ending though.

    I wonder where the aircraft ended up. I believe his widow sold it. A beast of an airplane with the R-1820 up front.

    I don't think any of the racing GB's had a happy life. A lot of crashes and pilots lost over the various models histories. Even the much more docile sport planes were reported to be a handful.
    "Mr. Awesome" always reminded me of one, a huge engine attached to a cockpit with just enough structure to keep them pointed in more or less the right direction.

    Not that long ago and quite a few planes that fall into "raced at Reno in years past" category.
