    If he is not careful he may damage that jacket.

    I'll second that.

    Always flip the collar Dave :rolleyes: ...

    What sort of engine you running in that Pitts S-17 V6? I can only see 2-3 exhaust headers this side. Oh yeah and is it carb or injected?

    Hmmm, I think the missing wings might be more of the issue Dave ;):D

    Very cool to see another A-2 being worn hard. Which repro are you wearing? Oh yeah, the denim's looking good as well.

    It's my buddy's Pitts S-1T. Fuel injected IO-360. He's been building some Wolf wings for it so it's been down for about 18 months. Tank leak repair, new clunk, new hoses, rebuilt mechanical pump and servo/throttle body. New wobble pump had been replaced first. Wouldn't run for crap. We narrowed it down and think it's a simple $5 elbow not seating a hose flair so it was sucking air. Running good in the pic.
    The jacket is the one I made and about ready for retirement. Under 3 yrs old so worn appropriately for about the time of a wartime jacket.

    That is so cool.

    Here I am thinking I am cool by taking my jacket to the air museum in Pensacola this spring.
