    Oh yes, every bit of it and possibly more. We aren’t entirely sure why that is but the original pilot made several attempts at take off and it finally did go. I tried taking it up a few weeks later and couldn’t keep it straight enough down the runway plus the engines weren’t making enough power that day either so I never did get a chance to fly it. The first test pilot said it took nearly all his skills to keep Abby flying (and he’s one of the best in the club).
