1942 Ryan PT-22 Recruit

Big Sky did a recover job on this PT.

After assembly and rigging the engine failed catastrophically on the test flight leaving John holding his breath over the woods at 700’.

Fortunately the prop stopped (so hard it split the wood prop), reducing the drag, allowing him to make a 180 and squeak in between two fir trees on the runway overrun.

It since has had a fresh Kinner R55 160HP engine overhaul and a brand new Sensenich wooden propeller.
