now now, don't be jealous just cause they could leave your bus in the dust between point A and point B.

This is a pretty lengthy thread on 76, with answers from a guy who helped design it, all sorts of tidbits there. I don't quite thing gutless is the word for it, but the A model could use a better stove, you'll be temping out more days then not.

Between the nose and the over sized glare-shield the visibility is a poor at times, usually what it means is as the flying pilot you'll be able to see where your landing, (albeit perhaps with a slight amount of crab) but as the Non-flying pilot you may not be able to see the spot as well.
