Mark Baenen’s Corvair Powered 750-STOL, at Oshkosh ’19, on Video
Below is a walk around Video shot at Oshkosh, its Mark’s CH-750 STOL, powered by a 2700cc Corvair. We spent a few evenings hanging out at the tent with Mark, he is really great company, a hilarious story teller. A great character to have in the world of Corvair building.
At the Zenith Dinner, Mark went to the podium and shared a great story of his arrival at Oshkosh; He stopped at a 500′ paragliding field near his dad’s house, picked him up, and together they flew into AirVenture. This captured the attention of every aviator in the room. On the car ride back to Wittman field, I told Mark that of all my 30 years in aviation, no day was on the same plateau as the day I took my father flying, and for that reason, Mark’s story would be my favorite of Oshkosh ’19.
