    Default 232

    Look's like the sale is pending on platinum fighters, anyone know where it might head to? Going stock or racing again? Hoping for the latter.....

    Returning to stock and heading overseas is what I am hearing.

    Is it correct that 232 hasn't flown (or even been given any love) since the sneeze when Hoot was flying her at Reno? Such a shame.

    I believe that is the case and has not flown since. It's too bad, could have won last year-

    It just kills me to hear that another of the few Super Unlimited's is going back to stock.

    When these planes are purchased by someone of great means and then NOT raced, it is a huge disappointment to the true "fans of the fastest" and (I believe) ultimately contributes to the demise of the Unlimited division and the sport in general.

    Wow, you went there. I've never been worried about the Bear being turned into a stocker. Especially since she wasn't a stocker to begin with. I hope the day never comes and I hope no one has even had the thought of turning Rare Bear stock. If she never flies again, I'd rather see it in a museum.
