The witness said that the engine sound of 'full power' never changed.

He said then the airplane nosed down and hit the runway @ Albuquerque NM '00, not repaired sold '06, Karl Thun Grahm, WA  possible project ?

This aircraft has a current registry how-come we have no photo is it a project airplane, there is no record of repairs after last accident ?

I talked to one of our member last night an I was informed that he had talked to Karl Thun, and the damage has been repaired and the aircraft has been returned to flying status, sometime around 03/07

Also may soon get a current photo to replace this one I have in my photo file.
