Pietenpol C-GSNS, 1933 design

Photographed during a visit to the British Columbia Aviation Museum, Sidney, British Columbia, Canada, on 9 August 2004.
This aircraft was built by Bob McDonnel from original 1933 Pietenpol plans. Starting in 1978, many hours went into its construction before its completion in 1984. The aircraft never flew as Mr. McDonnel suffered a heart attack just before he was to fly it for the first time. Not wanting anyone else to fly it, he donated it to the museum in December 1990.
