Scott Johansson flies Olde Style Aircraft's Waco RNF "Roy Timm Special".

     Scott Johansson took up Olde Style Aircraft's Waco RNF, the "Roy Timm Special" Saturday morning.

The airplane was heavily modified for aerobatics in the 1950's, including a bigger engine (Cont-220 off a Stearman), extending back the leading edges, doubling of all the flying wires and most interestingly the adding of a Cessna spring-steel landing gear.

Scott said, "It climbs like a RNF, flies like a UPF and lands like a Cessna 180."
