    When I try to access http://www.flycorvair.com/ I get the message
    Does everyone else get this? Is anyone in contact with William Wynne who can let him know?

    Yep, I see the same thing. Either it's been hijacked, or someone didn't pay his domain registration bill on time.

    Well, I looked up the domain and the registration cycle is late November (now for 2019), and pirated domains usually come with a page offering to sell the domain name. I suspect it is either a glitch or the site has been pulled for modifications.

    At least William is still responding to emails and doing business. I bought a ring gear from him just a couple of weeks ago...

    I just checked the Wayback Machine https://web.archive.org/web/*/flycorvair.com

    The website went down between the 1st of August and the 11th of August. I guess it doesn't get much traffic?

    Maybe William didn't pay his web hosting bill...

    Flycorvair.NET is up and running just fine. Hopefully he can get the .com site back....he had different info on each site.
