The aircraft began life as a factory built Pitts S2S, however, Jim's aggressive flying style soon took it's toll and significant modifications became necessary. The wings were disassembled and rebuilt, this time heavily fortified to withstand the high g-loading. The propeller was replaced with a custom composite prop to allow Jim to safely perform the gyroscopic maneuvers that he has become noted for. The aircraft's fuel and oil systems were extensively modified, and a 400 HP engine was bolted on by one of Jim's sponsors - Ly-Con Aircraft Engines. The aircraft re-emerged as the "Bulldog".
