    I will never forget the first gate call I did on a Northwest A-319. I got too the airplane and none of the controls were in a position one would expect. Called Maintenance Control, they told me to power down the aircraft for 5 minutes and then power it back up, when I powered it back up I almost jumped out of my skin watching all the control surfaces dance around. From that day on I called them the control, alt, delete, airplanes. I loved working on 727's and 37's. Mike

    AOPA website Kitfox
    So I was perusing the AOPA website this morning and the had an article on the upcoming show in Florida. In the group of pictures there is a real cool looking little Fox sticking its nose out of a trailer, anyone recognize it, and is the owner on this forum? Mike

    I found some parts for mine on Fleabay,  I used go-cart or hurst brakes for my search. Wheels might be a hard one. You might want to consider upgrading. Mike

    Which wheels and brakes  do you need? I have Hurst/airhart brakes on mine with 8 inch wheels. They are kind of uncommon anymore most have been updated.  Mike
