New seat position bad decision for Thorp pilot

from General Aviation News

Before the flight in the experimental Thorp T-18, the pilot unbolted and rebolted the pilot's seat from its middle position to the forward position. He did not check to see if the flight control stick movement would be restricted in this new configuration. During the takeoff roll, the plane would not rotate when he moved the flight control stick aft. more
