Here's another entry in the growing fleet of vintage Combat planes in the Northwest. Ken Burdick of Kamloops, B.C., built this Sneeker, a 1962 plane designed by Riley Wooten. The plane is scratch-built from plans from the Baxter/Mears Control-Line
Plans site. Power is a Johnson ss 35 from 1964. The plane is covered with Silron and finished with nitrate dope and Rustoleum with auto clear coat on the top. An oversize 10x6 prop keeps the speed down to 75 mph. Ken Burdick photo
