Certainly a nice looking plane (well that one is anyway!)
Very interesting, thanks for posting the aircraft's history and pics.There were nine Boorabees built in total. I gave the fuselage plug to Dave Donohoe who modified it for a rectangular boom tube. Dave's Shuttle shared the same wing but the boom, tail, undercarriage and controls were vastly different. I built two Mk1 Boorabees then made new molds and simplified the design for the Mk2.I loand the molds to persons I trusted, and gave them the CAD plans at no cost.
No more Boorabees were built because it required a great deal of effort on my behalf for builder assistance and it became very difficult to get the 5" boom tube and necessary drawn tubing to build the wing. I still have the molds.
