Mike Hazel of Mehama, Ore., has been busy building this fall. Last week we featured his recently completed B Speed plane, new on view in the Favorite Planes section. This week's cover photo is of Mike's recently completed Sneeker. With vintage Combat planes a favorite building subject lately, the Sneeker has emerged as one of the favorites because it is fairly easy to build and is a great flier. Mike's is powered by a vintage Fox .36X, and has extended tailbooms for better performance. An unusual feature is the racing-style fast-fill plug on the hard fuel tank. "I had one in the stash and that was easier than modifying the plumbing on a stock style tank," Mike explains. Flying Lines photo.
