NEWS AND STUFF
On September 29, 1986, during a test flight in preparation for Voyager’s World Circumnavigation, a wooden propeller failed (from the front engine) and was shorn from the aircraft. Dick was forced to make and emergency landing, and it was determined Voyager needed heavier, metal propellers to be successful in world flight. Hartzell jumped in and customer designed and fabricated new propellers. They were flight tested for the first time on November 15, 1986 – less than a month before Voyager took off on her historic flight!
