  1. GEE-BEE does not hold any FAA production approval to produce the ... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.faa.gov/aircraft/safety/programs/sups/upn/media/98-071r.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwiDg8mIvrHtAhUeSjABHeklBtwQFjACegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw0uOw8KFD7hFSIKXH2PHXHA I just stumbled across this information from the FAA. Any thoughts?
  2. Searching the Internet I found this pilot account about an accident with another engine that was Overhaul the same company that did mine. http://newlangsyne.com/enginefire/index.htm
  3. I agree with the earlier post. I highly recommend Lawrence Airmotive KLWM. I use to maintain my two aircraft with the prior owner of the place and now with Nik the current owner. Honest and diligent at a fair cost. However, if you want a comprehensive inspection, ask the seller to fly the plane to Air-Mods Service Center of Trenton-Robbinsville airport (N87) New Jersey. Not a far place to go to for a Mooney. At this place, you will pay more but will get an extensive list of major and minor issues including structure corrosion. This way you will not be surprise later.

  5. Thanks for sharing the link to the early postings regarding the accident. The incident attracted a lot of attention because of the AOPA and PBS report that was released just 5 days before the accident and because of the 5.2 M I got for my HS school to start an aviation program in the heart of NYC. Indee landing was challenging. Primarily because of the the low altitude we were flying at, under class B at only about 1500 to 1600 ft. However, all pilot are trained to deal with emergencies like this one. In my case, I was lucky enough to spot a golf course a few miles away. I feel th
  6. Yes, unfortunately there was a ditch on the fairway. The plane was total. If you see the pictures of the engine, you will find a 2in hole.
  7. The Overhaul was performed by Pine Mountain Aviation of Connecticut. They have been around for a long time and have a good reputation.
  8. This happened after a 36K Overhaul. Analysis During cruise flight, the pilot noticed an increase in cylinder head temperature on two cylinders and unsuccessfully attempted to reduce the temperature. He reported that he soon heard "an explosion" and noted a hole in the engine cowling. He performed a forced landing to a golf course, during which the landing gear collapsed, which resulted in substantial damage to the right wing. Postaccident examination of the engine revealed that the Nos. 1 and 2 connecting rods exhibited thermal discoloration consistent with a loss of lubri
