    I have a kit, fuselage is partly assembled as well as B wings wings. skins are no good but you need to update them to the 0.32 gauge anyway.

    Another BD-5 bites the cabbage. Report says pilot reported trouble gaining altitude, then crashed in this cabbage field. From the pictures, it appears the airplane landed upright, hard, flipped burned, pilot dead.
    http://www.kathrynsreport.com/2019/10/bede-bd-5-micro-fatal-accident-occurred.html

    Pilot was a long-time BD-5 owner
    https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2013/january/17/aviator-kept-remarkable-airplane-alive

    his FB page says he flew the airplane once in 2003 and tried again in 2018 "but it was not meant to be". I could not find what happened between 2018 and today. The pilot was clearly an airplane enthusiast but there is no indication on his FB page that he flew anything else recently.

    Note, this airplane was not the original N501BD. Pilot got the number when the original expired

    I would call this a pretty typical BD-5 accident.

    Sad to see another accident involving the bd5.

    I am still looking for a kit and parts though.I am determined to get one built and flying regardless.A good set of of completed wings and or other parts would be a good start.I have managed to track down some parts but completed wings would save a lot of time and effort for me.
