First Flight of
the Black Widow P61
Click on Thumbnail pictures for expanded view.

   After a great takeoff, the P61 flew for 7 minutes. Then the inboard engine stopped and the plane fell; it hit the ground, breaking off the nose and both wings at the booms. It is a easy repair, but I'm going to add 4 inches to each wing at the joint so it will take a little time to fix.
