This is what happens when you have a control line ship that you can't control. I'm still not certain why, but this P-40 never flew very well. This was the first of several times the engine mount and part of the nose was broken off in a crash. My theory is the pushrod was weak, but I'll have to examine the plane again. It awaits repairs ... still. This damage occured in the summer of 1973. The last time it flew was in July 1976, and it suffered similar damage.
