Re: [HiettEarp] The Comet.

Wow, am I glad you posted this. I flew a big green one and for the past 30 years I though it was a 5 cell.

I don't remember any bad flying characteristics but I was pretty conservative anyway when it came to close to the ground stuff.

It was actually owned by Jim Stoyas who died with it on an attempted canopy transfer in July 1982. I flew it a few times after that and as I recall it was considered by others as being a bit sluggish.
