I got to Play with a S.M.1019 in San Antonio, Texas in 2003. As I remember, the Allison 250 B-17 was de-rated to 317 hp. I had fun using Beta to back the Airplane up. If you pushed it on take off with 60 degrees of Flaps, you would be at 1,000 ft. by the time you were half way down the runway. I circled a "Texas Cook Out" at 500 ft. for 6 times and nobody at the cook out noticed or looked up. As for being a "Short Field Airplane", when you use Full Flaps and hit Beta (reverse) when you land, you can be stopped in less than 100 ft. "Too Much Fun!"
