    Why was it disassembled?
    My avatar is a Thurston TA16 Seafire, not sure who built it, but if my project ends up as nice as this , I'll be wrapped.

    Ouch indeed. Bob, glad to hear you made it through that OK. Surprised to see that it came through so intact. That's a testament to the skill of the builder but I don't know how many people would be willing to purchase and fly a composite aircraft with that sort of history. I hate to be a wet blanket in that regard but just being honest. It may be a tough sell with that history.

    All it takes is one. This may be a great find for the right builder... From the accident description, it doesn't sound like it may have had much damage. Planes that land on roads or motor homes or even gear-up usually sustain less damage than one would have thought. For example, the Bede that I filmed recently had a gear-up landing -- sliding 1,200 ft. down the runway at KCMA on Friday and was back in the air the next Tuesday. It does have an exceptional set of builders however. Check it out; here is the Tuesday flight.

    The lancair 360 project was disassembled to check the spar. The spar that is in the airframe does have a small crack at the very bottom side at the left out board end. Can probably still be used with a little fiberglass repair. Either way, the project does come with a new spar just in case. The engine I guess was sold before I got it. The left wing has been rebuilt, just need the wing tip finished. Both flaps are good, right aileron is good but the left aileron needs to be rebuilt and the new skins to do that are included. Bill.

    Metal is also a ton more resistant to damage and less prone to "hidden" damage in a hard landing or gear up scenario than composites are. It's one of the main drawbacks of composites (at least as we currently use them in homebuilding).

    Re: Lancair 360 Project

    It's registered as a Lancair 320.... I thought the 360 models had the big stab. Which model is this?

    To the best of my knowledge the 320 and 360 had the same tail and the Mark II mod is the bigger tail, which is usually fitted to 360's.

    Having built and owned both types, I think that the damage resistance is about the same for a properly build composite plane. And it is a lot easier to repair in normal situations. I think that it is a matter of experience. A lot of the old timers are biased against composites because they don't understand them. But I really don't want to start an argument about this on this thread. Thanks

    There are two issues at work here:
    1. What you are discussing when you say "damage".
    2. Whether you're talking about tolerance in the sense of the idea of whether you are focusing on using the plane again or sacrificing the aircraft so as to protect the occupants.

    A lot of the old timers are biased against composites because they don't understand them.
    Agreed, although I'll point out that I'm a 31 year old "newbie" to the hobby. Part of my issue is simply that composites have a lot of potential but that we as homebuilders are poorly positioned to use them to even the middle of the road of their capabilities due to costs and equipment constraints.

    But I really don't want to start an argument about this on this thread. Thanks
    No intent to start an argument. Just a friendly discourse but understood.
