Revamped Barracuda

Getting ready for Soar Utah I decided to revamp my Barracuda some. It was looking pretty haggared. I mostly fly it when conditions are rippin' and it has not always arrived back on the Earth gracefully. So something of a refit was in order.




Brisk 20-25mph winds at Atwater Beach put the Barracuda in its element

The more I fly it the more I like it.



I love my Barracuda!

I got the plane from Keith McLellan and he did me a great favor by selling this fantastic sloper. Keith had Doug Reel build this plane and speced flaps, which come in handy at our limited space LZs at our slopes. Without them it would come in pretty hot.
