After an unfortunate mishap during its first flight, the Bugatti 100P replica race plane has returned to the skies. The plane sustained damage to both propellers after an off-runway excursion back in August during its first test flight.
But with two new propellers from Rupert Wasey at Hercules Propellers, the 100P has achieved another milestone in this ambitious project to build and fly an airworthy replica of an airplane that never flew.
"The flight was flawless and the airplane performed perfectly," the Bugatti100p Project reported on Facebook.
Take a look at the successful second flight in the video below.

The flight segment includes the takeoff leg; turn to crosswind; downwind leg; base to final turn; and final approach and landing.Many thanks to safety chase / photo plane pilot Mark Meyers!
