Default My 4

As you may have seen on the front page today, Grady has finished painting my 4...finally it's REALLY almost a finished airplane. Been flying for a little over a year. Only lack the tail art :-) and finishing touches on the smoke system! Can't wait to get her home!

Default RV4 #2973

Completed in 2002, but I cannot take credit for the build. I'm in the process of a significant modification including the repainting of fiberglass. UPDATE: Pic of RV-4 after repaint red. Side by side with my new RV-8

Purchased 126RV (serial #126 & apparently the 8th -4 to fly) a few weeks ago. It was built by Bob Olds in 1983 and I believe I'm about the 5th owner. 1550 TTAF/E with Inverted Fuel (Ellison TB) and Oil.

She's not the prettiest -4 you've seen when you get close but is a good, basic VFR airplane that is FUN!



[edit]
...searching through the web and ran across some old Vans archives. Bob Olds had posted a picture of my plane over northern California, circa 1985. Figure I'd update the post for archival purposes!
