    Default Introducing "Buc"

    Buc is not the name of my airplane but the dude gracing her tail. Buc was designed by Jon Bliss at CubCrafters. To Jon he is "Bad to the Bone Bear", to the airport bums he is "Angry Bear" and to my wife he is "What the heck happened to the cute one you showed me on that yellow airplane" Bear. Mitch said I should tell her "Buc ate it". I did not. I came up with the cute name (Cub spelled backwards) to try endearing Buc to her. No dice.

    Anyway, some airplane stats: Born 4/9/16, 980 lbs, currently about 80 hrs. TT, CHT temps (hot subject) about 360 to 370 degrees at 2300 RPM.
