Happy to report that RV-8 G-MIRV made it's first flight July 1. My build-partner Steve did the honours. Two flights in the bag, first one was 30 mins, and following a good post-flight inspection and refuel, the second one was two hours of running in.

I've really enjoyed building another RV, but the best part has been making a new mate in Steve. I know some people fret about co-building an aircraft with someone else, but when you find a great personality match, it just enhances the pleasure of the build process.

Another very nice RV-8. Like the weatherstripping on the windshield.

Default Basically finished - HB-YMM

I'm happy to show you some pictures taken today of my basically finished RV-8. Not all the inspection panels are installed, since I need a final inspection before I can start putting fuel in, and starting the engine. Quite happy with the result!
