GeeBee QED Reproduction
The GeeBee QED is a
1934 design that the late Jim Moss took on to create. The
plans were modified to use a larger engine than the original
design called for. This called for some airframe modifications
to allow for the added weight and power of the Wright R-1820
engine. The original design called for a Pratt and Whitney R-1690 Hornet. It
looks very much like the original GeeBee racer, but much
larger and with a crew of two. QED is Latin for quod erat
demonstrandum, which means "what had to be demonstrated.".
Seeing a classic replica is quite a treat, but to see
it fly is even better.
