Wolf W-II Boredom Fighter

wolf-bore


Don Wolf, a technical engineer at Fairchild’s Engine Division on many classified military projects and flew many different the past half century, then finally got around to designing a replica of the World War I wood-and-wire fighter types he loved as a kid. Rather than metal, he chose to build the framework of steel fittings of chrome-moly as well as tube structures for cabine, landing gear, etc. Wolf spent a year of spare time detailing Boredom Fighter after running stress analyses. The takeoff roll of 150 is spectacular, as well as its fast climb and excellent economy cruise of 100 mpg burning 3 gph of low-octane fuel.
