Details to come
1184 was featured in a movie titled: The Endless Summer 2 in 1994.
At the time 1184 was owned by Harvey Gibson.
This part of the film was filmed in Costa Rica,
at Oliver "Ollie" North's favorite-secret beach.
I'll bet no one knew he was a surfer, eh?
An accident was caught on film when running the plane up on the beach.
It looked like a ground loop and resulted in a damaged wing.
The filming stopped when it came to rest.
I happened to catch the flim on HBO late at night, back in 2003.
It was a Horrible sight!!!
I've never seen it again on TV.
The DVD is available.
