Observations:
Lovely and reliable small diesel. I am sure a lot of people have good memories about the ED bee. The British and Czech engines are my favorite ones. The British have so many interesting engines made in the past. This engine could be used even today for every weekend flying a nice small plane.The little Bee will pull with plessure it in the sky..again and again...
Thanks for dropping in...still a lot more interresting engines waiting...
