Here's another one. Looks pretty low, too.

Just saw this news add about a Rockwell International Turbo Commander 690B owned by former Microsoft exec that died recently. Reminded me about the styling of the 1121. Too bad and very sad that they had to die though.

My guess is carb ice and he got too low, aimed it to let the wings take the impact on both houses. I think he did the best he could considering.

Got this one home last Sunday at 3am, and on the track that afternoon. Pushed out a freeze plug Friday night on a strong pass, and dumped all it's green stuff on the track. We'll try again next weekend. Pulls in a class called Outlaw, open cube, open speed, 6500 lbs. It's 800 cu. in. now, will probably go bigger later.

Thanks for the comments,
They are D60's front/rear

That's too bad. I flew on an Aero Commander in the late 80s. Very similar shape. I think there were quite a few 1121 accidents late in its service life as well.

We lost a member of our ski club last month. He lost an engine on his Piper PA-30 taking off out of Amarillo and was unable to recover. Very sad situation. He had been flying for years. Heck of a guy and wonderful family. We will miss him a lot.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
