As a pilot, the last thing you ever want to encounter is an engine failure. Barber Aviation is in the pilot seat of this rebuilt 1969 Pitts Special and found himself in an emergency situation when the engine suddenly went out.

We're told the fuel tank flop tube was not able to draw enough fuel to maintain combustion, causing the engine to stop.
