I own 7008V ser # 547. The nicest flying airplane. Not for big and tall folks. Airplane has no bad habits, but you must keep it moving on landing. If you are slow, it will mush in for a hard landing. Mine has not been molested. What has been done to the panels on some is a shame.

Bjorn Andreasson originally designed and constructed the prototype BA-7 in his garage in San Diego, while employed as an engineer at Convair. Powered by a 75-hp Continental, it was, as the type designation implies, his seventh independent design. It flew for the first time in October 1958. Upon completion of the initial testing and development program, Andreasson returned to his native Sweden where the BA-7 design right were acquired by Malmo Flygindustri. The aircraft was renamed the MFI-9 Junior and limited production commenced in 1962. Later a manufacturing license agreement was reached with the West German aircraft firm of Bölkow-Entwicklungen KG, Munich.

License-built version of the MFI-9 Militrainer, also known as the "Biafra Baby". The main cause for the licensing out of the civilian version was rigid Swedish arms exporting laws, classifying any aircraft as "war materiel", thus blocking all serious attempts to sell the plane on a world market.
