CHEAP!
THE EARLY MOONEYS HAVE A REPUTATION IN THE AVIATION COMMUNITY AS SMALL, CRAMPED AND QUIRKY. BUT FAST!
I AGREE, THE EARLY M20C HAS A STUPID DASH LAYOUT, FLAT WINDSHIELD THAT SEEMS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR NOSE, THE 3 PIECE UPPER COWLING IS HELD ON BY A MILLION LITTLE SCREWS MAKING SERVICING A CHORE, MECHANICAL LANDING GEAR THAT TAKES A BODY-BUILDER TO RETRACT AND HYDRAULIC FLAPS YOU HAVE TO PUMP A HANDLE TO EXTEND!
IT’S FAST, BUT WHY BOTHER!
NOW EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THE LATER MODEL M20J, KNOWN AS THE “201”, FIXED THESE PROBLEMS.
A SLEEK SEXY SLOPED WINDSHIELD ADDS SPEED AND REMOVES THE CLAUSTROPHOBIC FEELING INSIDE.
PROPER ELECTRIC LANDING GEAR AND FLAPS WERE ADDED
A COOL THROTTLE/MIXTURE/PROP CONTROL QUADRANT MAKES THE CONTROLS EASIER
1 PIECE UPPER COWL WITH ONLY A FEW QUICK TURN FASTENERS TO REMOVE
QUITE A LOT OF IMPROVEMENTS, MAKING A MOONEY SO EQUIPPED LOOK, WORK AND FEEL BETTER!
MOST PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THE “MOONIACS” ARE UNAWARE THAT MANY OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS STARTED WITH THE 1970 MODEL YEAR, LIKE THIS ONE!!
FAR BETTER 6 PACK LAYOUT FOR GUAGES, FULL SIZED MANIFOLD PRESSURE GUAGE AND TACH ANGLED TOWARD THE PILOT.
RESETTABLE CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN AN EASY TO SEE PANEL
MODERN LIGHTED ROCKER SWITCHES
THE NICE QUADRANT FOR ENGINE CONTROLS
1 PIECE UPPER COWL
ELECTRIC GEAR AND FLAPS
ALL HERE.
BUT IN 1970, THE NICE “201” WINDSHIELD WAS STILL 7 YEARS AWAY!
NO WORRY, THIS AIRPLANE AS HAD THE 201 WINDSHIELD MOD ADDED!
AS WELL AS A LOWER COWL OPENING CLOSURE MOD WHICH MAKES THE AIRPLANE GO FASTER AND ACTUALLY COOL BETTER!!!
AND THE SLICK LASAR 1 PIECE FIBERGLASS BELLY, WHICH MAKES MAINTENANCE A BREEZE AND INCREASES SPEED!
THIS AIRPLANE ALSO HAS A 201 STYLE PAINT SCHEME, SO IT WILL MAKE YOU THINK WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT!
THIS IS A LOW TOTAL TIME AIRFRAME, ONLY 2,650 SINCE NEW!
THE 0-360 180 H.P. ENGINE HAS ONLY 1,114 HOURS SINCE MAJOR (2,000 HOUR TBO)
BUT THERE IS A PROBLEM!!!!!
THIS AIRPLANE DID NOT “CRASH”
WHILE MAKING A NORMAL LANDING AT THE CRYSTAL RIVER FLORIDA AIRPORT, TWO OF THE NOSEGEAR SHOCK DONUTS, MADE OF A HARD RUBBER, BROKE, PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY WERE BRITTLE FROM AGE
THESE 3 DONUTS ARE WHAT PROVIDE SHOCK ABSORPTION, AND WITHOUT THEM, THE FORK IS ALLOWED TO PARTIALLY FOLD BACKWARD, EVEN THOUGH THE UPPER TRUNION IS FULLY INTACT AND UNDAMAGED!
THE NOSE CAME DOWN ABOUT 8 INCHES BUT DID NOT FULLY COLLAPSE.
IN FACT, THE AIRPLANE KEPT ROLLING ON ITS UNDAMAGED WHEEL AND TIRE AND WAS EVEN STEERABLE, BUT 8 INCHES IS TOO FAR FOR THE PROPELLOR ON A MOONEY WHICH SITS CLOSE TO THE GROUND ALREADY.
BOTH PROP TIPS STRUCK THE RUNWAY AND IN FACT CONTINUED TO SCRAPE AS THE AIRPLANE WENT DOWN THE RUNWAY, AS THE ENGINE DID NOT STOP RUNNING!
AS THE MOMENTUM SLOWED, THE PROP STOPPED TOUCHING THE GROUND, AND THE EVENT WAS OVER.
EXCEPT FOR THE MISSING DONUTS AND THE 2 PROP BLADE TIPS, THERE IS NO OTHER DAMAGE TO THIS AIRPLANE!!!!
THE AIRFRAME SUFFERED NO DAMAGE OF ANY KIND!!!!!!!!!
NO SCRAPING TO THE COWLING OR AIR SCOOP!
NO SCRAPING TO THE NOSE GEAR DOORS!
NO SCRAPING TO THE EXHAUST PIPE!
NO SCRAPING TO THE COWL FLAPS!
NO SCRAPING TO THE FIBERGLASS 1 PIECE BELLY, OR BELLY ANTENNAS!
NO DAMAGE TO THE FLAPS, FLAP HANGERS, STEP, WINGS, WINGTIPS, TAILCONE, TAIL FEATHERS, RUDDER, FUSELAGE, DOORS, ETC., ETC., ETC.
NO DAMAGE TO THE SPINNER!
NO DAMAGE TO ANYTHING EXCEPT THE PROP AND NOSE DONUTS!
NOW OF COURSE, IN ORDER TO BE SIGNED OFF AS AIRWORTHY AGAIN, THE ENGINE WILL REQUIRE A PROP STRIKE INSPECTION. BUT NOT AN OVERHAUL!
AT JUST OVER HALFWAY TO RECOMMENDED TBO (TIME BETWEEN OVERHAUL), A MAJOR OVERHAUL IS NOT REQUIRED OR INDICATED HERE.
THE PROP WILL REQUIRE REPLACEMENT (ANOTHER 2 BLADE OR A SEXY 3 BLADE WILL FIT NICELY HERE)
THE REPLACEMENT OF THE NOSEGEAR DONUTS IS ACTUALLY ONLY A FEW HOUR JOB AND I WILL EVEN SUPPLY A SET FROM OUR GOOD USED STOCK TO THE BUYER OF THIS AIRPLANE!
THE EXTERIOR COSMETICS OF THIS AIRPLANE ARE OK, BUT NOT PRETTY. I RUBBED THE FADED BLUE ON A WING STRIPE WITH MY FINGER AND THE DEEP BLUE IS STILL THERE, IT JUST NEEDS A GOOD RUBBING OUT AND WAXING TO LOOK 200% BETTER!
THE BLUE CLOTH INTERIOR IS IN VERY NICE SHAPE!!
INTERIOR PLASTICS ARE OVERALL GOOD, WITH A GOOD HEADLINER AND AGAIN A LITTLE ATTENTION WILL HELP!
NOTICE HOW THE DASH AND GLARESHIELD LOOK LIKE A 201 SETUP, WITH MODERN STRIP GUAGES AND 2 CENTER STACKS FOR RADIOS.
AVIONICS INCLUDE:
KING KMA-20 AUDIO PANEL WITH MARKER BEACONS
KING KX-170B NAV-COM
TERRA DIGITAL NAV WITH DIGITAL READOUT GLIDESLOPE INDICATOR
SIGTRONICS SPA-400 4 PLACE INTERCOM SYSTEM
ARNAV DIGITAL FUEL TOTALIZER/FUEL FLOW
RARE BUT INSTALLED HERE IS AN STEC ELECTRIC PITCH TRIM SYSTEM, HELPFUL FOR CLIMBOUT, LANDING AND EASY TO MAKE FINE ADJUSTMENT IN CRUISE!
ALL FLIGHT AND ENGINE INSTRUMENTATION AS SHOWN.
SO THIS IS A WHOLE AIRPLANE, FROM SPINNER TO TAIL, THAT DID NOT CRASH OR RUN INTO ANYTHING!
OTHER THAN THE MECHANICAL FAILURE OF THE DONUTS, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE TO THIS AIRFRAME FROM THIS EVENT (NOT CONSIDERED AN ACCIDENT BY THE FAA)
THIS WILL MAKE A NICE AIRPLANE, WITHOUT ANY SHEET METAL REPAIRS AT ALL!!
I DON’T SEE WHY THE AIRCRAFT COULDN’T BE MADE FERRIABLE WITH A PROP REPLACEMENT AND SOME REPLACEMENT DONUTS!!
SOLD WITH THE FAA BILL OF SALE
FAA AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATE
AIRFRAME, ENGINE AND PROP LOGS
AND THE KEYS!!
YOUR NEW AIRPLANE IS A 160 MPH, 5+ HOUR CAPABLE FREEDOM MACHINE AND YOU CAN BUY IT HERE VERY INEXPENSIVELY!!
