Is that Darrel Grounds old bird? If it is, Very well built. Also, if it is, did you know that engine had a head on with a Cow in Texas:) The engine ended up on your bird. The airframe was a Factory Exp T model Pitts. Greg Dobesh in Tx owns the T now.

You can only go by what is in the logs, what the seller tells you and the NTSB records. Which says the engine was from a plane that suffered from fuel starvation in a AcroTek S1T N49308 in a engine out landing in an orange grove in FL. A ways from TX. After the engine was checked for run-out and less than .001 and nothing in the logs telling of rotating impact or a prop strike with a cow and I have been flying for 150 hours. But if you know of an actually encounter with a cow, then please call me 704-604-0855 and give me the N-Number of the plane it was in.

Don't know if it is the same engine,. It was on a S1T, dark green in color. There is a pic of it at Aresti Aerodrome, TX. Don't remember if the N Number is visible. Has the owner next to the bird with his boot on the dead cow. It may have happened outside of Texas. The owner of the S1T ended his life up here in CO, suicide by gunshot. I will try to find more info.

Bluesidown, Jamie, and anyone else that wants to know........the engine in the Ultimate above IS NOT the same engine that hit the cow!! Daryle Grounds and Gary Swanson bought the salvage of the airplane in Fla. There was definitely nothing wrong with this engine when it showed up in Texas, I know, I checked it myself (I didn't make the log entry...maybe it was Don Ort) and tried to buy it from Daryle...he wouldn't sell so we pickled it at my hangar. The engine is as represented referenced in the log entry above. Glen Frick got most of the airframe from Swanson to finish up the airframe and stuff he got from Bruce Sidlinger (the ''cow killer'' guy).

The cow killer incident happened at F46, Rockwall, Texas.

Apparently this post should be retitled to Cow Punching with Biplanes. If it happened once then it probably happened again - on video!

The 'Cow Killer" incident happened nearly 30 years ago. Hardly worth even bringing up now. Couple of other inaccuracies in the story here. Let the dead rest.

...and let someone sell his plane. Time to get back on topic.
