Looks like Columbia Pacific Aviation. I got my pilots licence on that ramp, a&p just to the west at Big Bend. Beautiful 6, and welcome to kmwh!

Flew it home from Phoenix AZ after the purchase in approx 9 hrs of flight time
to my home base of Louisa, VA. (LKU)
As you must know I am enjoying the airplane beyond my expections. There are three other RV-6's at LKU
so you can imagine how much fun we are having on weekends.
Drop in we are ususally there every weekend.

It is also one of the fastest RV-6s around. Go to www.sportairrace.org, scroll down to the bottom and click on "2007 Race Season Race Results" then click on Taylor 100 Race Results. You will see that your airplane completed the four sided 100 mile course at 214.58 mph.

I knew about that race, I think Robbie set a new speed record with it.
I see on the results that you were not too far behind him.
The other 3 RV's at LKU know it's fast also.

Made It Safely to the Airport (1B8)
 

After 8 years of having it around the house it felt a bit like sending kids to college!


Locking rudder with a couple of plastic plates and some zip ties - worked great. Did the same for the elevators.


Thanks to West Side Towing & Repair of Bennington VT


Cover billowed a bit


Safely tucked under the wing for now of C172 N5551R in the Cambridge Valley Flying Club's 60' x 60' hangar at Chapin Field (1B8), Cambridge NY. Drop by and say hello.

Now it's time to fit the wings.
