Lots of us make weird comments on the forum me included. Have to believe this guy is a biplane nut;
Dennis, good to see your still out there. I met you in watertown at the Tailwind flyin a couple of years ago after conversing with you via email a few years prior. I'm looking at an ASII project now.
Well, there's a photo of an AN-2 on the wall behind him.....
One of the few vids I would suffer through 17 minutes. And I learned something.
He does a lot of funny videos. I've enjoyed his "how to fly a Cirrus" videos, which tend to be a long string of jokes that end with, "and then you pull this red handle. That's what the manual says to do."
Watch all his stuff. It is all funny! Here is a good one...
I tried but my ADHD won't let me endure any youtube videos more than 3 minutes in length.
LOL! It is worth it. Brian is pretty damn funny. The one I posted above is pretty short
I ordered my kit! Can’t wait to haul 600lbs at 200knits in in my mom’s C-150!
Good to hear from you. Lots of guys going back and forth from Tailwinds to biplanes!
We moved to North Houston but the biplanes are still in Illinois, see you at Oshkosh?
We park in IAC. Warning...contest aerobatics is way harder than racing Tailwinds!
Here is my Matronics post from 11 years ago that got us started into the last 4 biplanes;

i bought a wrecked Acro II last weekend in central Michagan.
The plane lost power and landed hard on an upslope.
The prop hit the ground in a horiz. position, i looked at the engine
and think it would be a great buy for a Tailwind.
It was overhauled by Wag Aero and had 370 hrs SMOH when it crashed in
No carb or mag.
The owner does not want to ship it so it would have to be picked up, i
could help ship it
but i am 200 miles away myself.
i was thinking the Michigan guys might want to take a look at it.
He wants $2,500 for it.
i attached a photo of the plane wreck.

PS, i was all ready to go back and pick it up but my Wife noted that
i already have 2 1/2 biplanes in the garage and an engine in the
I don't think he's that funny. I'd rather waste my time watching Kermit Weeks. I learned how to fly a Sopwith Pup, FM2, J2F6 and a P40N this weekend.
I can't decide which I'd like best, a Duck or an AN2? I think the J2F?
