RANS Coyote S4 at Eagleville test flight strip

In 1993, Steve Mook and I were working on an upgrade to a Smithware product called "Visual Controls for Btrieve." He and I had been toying with the idea of building a it plane for quite a while. Over lunch one day, we decided that if we got the upgrade completed on time, we would generate a bonus for each of us that would fund purchasing a RANS S4 Coyote Ultralight.

Well, we got the product done ahead of schedule and spent the next nine months of evenings in my garage building the kit plane. The photo database below does not have many photos in it, but at some point in the future, I'll scan the album that I have and that will add a lot of photos.
