This is a follow-up on the old "Sad News" posts of Casey's death while flying his Mustang II. FWIW, I bought a Mustang II primarily to get the engine for a T-18 project I have. But then I thought, that "It's "complete" and certificated, so why not have an A&P give it the once over to see about getting it back into the air?" After checking back with the A&P (who has built and flown a Sonerai II), he showed me a problem with the horizontal elevator that was binding in the "nose up", stick back configuration. Well, that's a problem. We talked about making it a tri-gear. Just so happens another Mustang II tri-gear was on the field and the A&P had the key to the hanger. So we went to take a look. I was curious about the elevator, so we pulled the stick back and that aircraft's elevator bound in the exact same place as mine. So, Casey came to mind since he died according to the FAA from excessive AOA in departure. My thought is that there may be a problem with the elevator binding in the horizontal stabilizer, since I have now seen that 2x on 2 different aircraft. The elevator crams up under the top skin on the starboard side only. Enough back pressure and it might jam irretrievably. If anyone has any Mustang II friends, they might want to take a look to see if these 2 are just isolated anomalies or if Casey died from a jammed elevator.
