    Wow, why does that never happen to me!
    Surely they pulled the add and didn’t let that go at that price
    If someone on here got that what a buy

    Hi Burt,
    I snapped it up. I came across it while searching for some engine parts for one of our airplane projects, before I signed out I threw in an A2 jacket search and it came up. I couldn't hit the buy it now fast enough. Then I came on here and saw this thread, I figured I would wait till it showed up to say anything. Other than the small moth holes in the knits it appears to be new with little wear. I needed something to wear in the biplane for fall and spring flying so I figured I would give the A2 a try!

    Oh Man!
    That is very nice!
    I'm not a pilot so forgive my ignorance if I'm mistaken, but it looks like you do some stunt flying!

    Thanks Burt, yes both are made for Aerobatics....We built the one on the left (Acrosport 2) from scratch and re-covered and upgraded the one on the right (Pitts S1S) for my brother. My Dad is 74 years old and he just used the Acrosport to Compete in IAC (International Aerobatic Club) Nationals in September.

    Interesting... I just went to the Jacksonville FL Air show . I saw a number of stunt pilots including Patty Wagstaff. National Aviation Hall of Fame. 3 time national acrobatic champion. I knew a fellow who was pretty well known in those circles from Key West, Freddie Cabanas. Unfortunately he had a tradgic accident Mexico.
    Thanks for the photos of your aircraft very interesting.
    You've got an interesting story;
    By the way I'm sure I would never fly anything that I had built. :eek:
