Smile First Flight for N947WT

I am please to announce that N947WT, RV-12 #120406 received its airworthiness certificate on 6/26/2012 and flew first this morning, a beautiful, hazy, 90 degree at 8:00 am day in St Louis. Thanks to all of you who contributed to the RV-12 forum. Comments here saved untold time and $ during the construction. The first flight of 30 minutes was in all ways uneventful except for being the first flight!
