The reconstruction after its first run. It had traversed the entire grass runway, and gone into the graded dirt extension that ran through to the neighbouring padock. The plane was turned around, the engine restarted, and a second run done in the opposite direction, though with no real speed to it. The engine stalled about half-way along the runway. After that, proceedings ground to a halt.
