    I can't seem to post a video, but if you search "Widgeoneering" you can see a video of the first flight of the Widgeon after a long period of work. I'll try to get some pics up from the home computer

    Very cool! 20-30 mph faster than a Pacer, on 4X the fuel burn!! Is this a great country, or what?

    Click the second icon in the header in the Quick Reply and you can post the video link. Looks like a couple of frames of video tape.

    Thanks for posting the link blue44 - that was the first flight of the Widgeon in 26 years. We’ve been working on it for about 18 months to get it airworthy again. We flew it for 3-4 hours last Sunday; did some water landings - what fun! Looking forward to next summer.
