  • Oshkosh Winner Bearhawk For Sale

    EAA Airventure 2013 "Outstanding Craftsmanship Award" winner Bearhawk 4 Place For Sale

    427 TTAF / TTSN. A beautiful 10/10 inside and out. Hangared in Goodyear, Arizona and has been carefully flown and meticulously maintained

    I have been lucky enough to own Georg Himmeroeder's beautiful Bearhawk for the last year. This is without a doubt the best equipped, best built and most capable Bearhawk flying today. It has been an absolute joy to fly it for the last year. I am advertising here on Bearhawk Forums first, since many of you know Georg's airplane from articles and interviews.

      Thanks Chris. A couple people have asked why I'm selling. I am buying an aerobatic aircraft to continue my progress in IAC competitions and need to free up hangar space (and money). Otherwise, I'd be keeping this airplane forever.

        SOLD! The new owner flew her home today. Sad to see the airplane go.

          Congratulations on the sale! Someone is getting a humm-dinger of an aircraft.

            Did the person that bought this airplane wreck it? Anyone know the story?


            • #7

              Looks like a ground loop causing right gear collapse resulting in some wing damage...

                Do we know if this BH had the streamlined type oleo landing gear struts, or the improved round tube type?

                No clue, all I know is what's in that report I linked.

              Was it repaired? Is the new owner on the forum?


              • #9
                Yeah, I'm curious if this was repaired. Same thing happened to our four place this week. I'm wondering if the new gear wouldn't have collapsed...

                  Probably not, but almost certainly you still would have bent a wing. The key is not to ground loop. Very few airplanes by luck alone survive a ground loop in tact.

                  Jon - Very sorry to hear about the incident with your 4 Place. Is there anything you can share about the experience that would benefit the Bearhawk community? I think I've only heard this happening to the 4 Place. Did this occur during touch down... rollout... taxing...? Obviously a result of side loading? Thanks.
