Glad the pilot's OK!

Captain Eddie taxiing his Fairey Firefly at Aviation Nation 2007

Captain Eddie has one of the few (if not the only) Fairey Firefly still flying. Well, it looks like it's going to be on the ground longer than anyone wanted it to be. There was a bit of an incident at Wings over Gillespie this past weekend and the airplane ended up in the dirt on its belly. Eddie is OK and the plane is a bit banged up, but should be fairly easy to repair. There's a series of photos taken during the incident here.
Best wishes to Captain Eddie for quick repairs and a speedy return to flight
