  • Finished Bearhawk 4 place aircraft - the photo thread

    I have been thinking of starting a thread about the finished and flying Bearhawks. Somewhere to collect together pictures into one place, for the viewing pleasure of prospective and current Bearhawk enthusiasts.

    The reason for such a thread? I have always enjoyed looking over the wide variety of different aircraft set-ups, with home-building there is so much variety. The instrument panels, doors & windows, paint schemes, inductions, engines, landing gear, etc. Perhaps most importantly, I like generally getting a sense of the numbers and success of the Bearhawk design. To say "over 100 4-place aircraft flying" may not sound like a lot, but if you ever saw 100 aircraft of the same model in one place - it's pretty darn impressive.

    For simplicity's sake, I will start a 4-place thread. If this takes off, no pun intended, then separate threads could be created for LSA, Patrol, etc.

    If you want to contribute your photos, please do! That's the idea of this thread. I will try to start collecting public domain images where I can, please feel welcome to help with that too.

    Great idea. Also builder could request certain pics to help through the build.

              Should we create a new category and make a thread for each airplane?

                I like that idea. Keeps each plane separated, and anyone can contribute images that they've captured or located for that aircraft.

                      I've created a new forum category where we can start a new thread for each airplane: https://bearhawkforums.com/forum/com...ying-bearhawks
                      When you start a new thread, you can select a prefix for the title that corresponds with whether it is a 4-place, Patrol, etc. I'd love to see the plans number and tail number in the title, but will be happy to see which way you guys prefer it to go. Let me know if you see any way to make it better.

                        Nicely done Jared - that is a much cleaner solution, thanks!

                          This is awesome! Great idea and execution!
                          There's also a bunch of completed Bearhawks on Airliners.net

                              When I click the thread for Bearhawk 4-Place N255z I get a search engine. I guess I need to click on "N255z" and not click "Bearhawk 4-place".
