Video of the tailwheel of an Experimental Airplane Mustang II on landing. The purpose was to see if the standard tapered tailwheel spring (main center tailwheel support) flexes left and right causing directional instability after tailwheel touchdown. You will see how the wheel actually spins to 90 degrees during the spring bounces. This was a not-so-smooth "three-point" landing. The side springs and chains were shortened after seeing how loose they appear in flight. N727RH at KOLV - Olive Branch, MS runway 18. 10/30/2011. Complete web site: http://experimentalairplane.com
