Default Freshly Painted!

Picked up N16DK from Midwest Aircraft Refinishing about 2 weeks ago now. I must say, it looks awesome! Ross, George and Kris did a phenomenal job. Design by Conrad Kothmann at Maverick Aircraft Designs.

Default Airborne Photo Shoot

A couple of pictures that were taken yesterday of our RV-7A.

My son and I were flying together and the formation work was some of the most fun I've ever had in a small plane. My son has never flown on the wing before, so it was great practice for him.

Hope you enjoy.

Beautiful plane! Ironically, I was working on my paint scheme and I too am going with Blue and Silver and was thinking of black too. Looks great on your plane!

Default Thank you!

We are very happy with how the plane turned out. The scheme was pretty unique but we love the color choices and the overall appearance.

No snags during the maiden flight and four further flights were done. As you can see it was quite hazy and a lot of low cloud around, but at least not as hot as during the previous few days. It flies straight and fast like any RV should . The paint scheme is based on a F86 sitting in Seattle in the Museum of Flight.



This is the sixth RV project for me. I wish the three owners many years of RV adventures.
Nice 7! I was wondering which side panels you had in your interior? I'm looking for some but am coming up mostly blank! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
