Re: Nipper composite fuel tank

Hi Jim Glad you liked the Bee. I had the fuselage recovered a few years ago and that smartened it up: she probably looks the best ever at the moment and I propose to keep it that way. I'm afraid I don't have any drawings of the exhaust or tank. The tank was made by Motorsport Revival in York who use...

Re: The Bee and Me

But I'm back and hoping to fly for another 20 years!! There seem to be fewer Nippers flying at the moment which is a shame. I k...

Re: LAA Sywell 2014

It was a good Rally this year and I was delighted that my Nipper was invited to be on static display. Because of my Bee colour scheme, lots of folk still think of my Nipper as a "joke" aeroplane and it's not always taken seriously. So I'm pleased as punch that the LAA think otherwise......

The Bee and Me

Hi everyone You probably all know me and the Bee which I've owned now for 20 years. I've been a bit quiet recently following two outfield landings after take off. The problem was caused by a faulty fuel pump so on both occasions, I landed in fields but stayed upright and walked away. Testimony to wh...

Re: Nipper composite fuel tank

I had a new tank fitted last year as part of a complete overhaul of the fuel system. The seal in the old tank had started to perish so we fitted a new aluminium one. Cost about £800 and needed LAA approval.

Good Rally this year with 750 visiting aircraft. My Nipper was on static display and attracted lots of interest too!!
