    Maybe it's just the cell phone video, but it almost looks like he had a gear hanging?

    That's interesting... I talked with Will earlier tonight.. he's broke down in Elko... gear came down on him on its own on his way back home today.........

    Gotta look at that video!

    After reading your observation and watching that video over a few times frame by frame , I think its just the frame rate of the video makes a propeller blade look like a gear drop in the video...He did have a gear issue on the way home, but I am pretty sure that's an illusion in the video...

    My condolences, Will, knowing you're stuck in Elko... I hope you get unstuck from that place soon and have a safe trip home.

    Great job team Steadfast. Now what I really want to know is when is Strega going after the Bear. That is the only record that really matters.

    Now someone needs to go break his record in an american designed aircraft. Maybe something like this?

    No! The original killed enough people.

    Jimmy Doolittle is one of the few men to have flown it and lived to tell the tale.
