Thumbs up SNF Best Auto Engine Homebuilt 2016

Congratulation to Sam and Rose Hodges from Dawson Springs, KY
SNF Best Auto Engine Homebuilt 2016
First time attending SnF!





It is a 05' Mazda 13b Renesis Rotary Engine - Very good looking FWF install!

Hi Bobby,

Thanks for posting the notice. I mentioned their win in the SNF thread, but didn't have the excellent pics of the FWF.

I saw this airplane at SUN-n-FUN. Good looking bird and that engine was a pretty amazing piece of work. Congrats!

Default Good on them

Great to see another Kentucky boy do good. Maybe I'll get to see it/them at Rough River sometime.

Sam doesn't spend much time on internet lists & forums, but he did tell me that he has a little less than 200 hrs on it now. He's flown it down to MS to visit us here at Slobovia, and IIRC, multiple times into the upper midwest. It's not a hangar queen.
