Let me guess... Your favorite ice cream flavor is vanilla?

RV-9's are wonderful airplanes. You will enjoy flying it.

Yep...there are a lot of great flavors of ice cream, but it's hard to beat good ole "Homemade Vanilla".

Of course it doesn't hurt to add a little A&W Root-beer.

Ditch the big N numbers and apply some vinyl accent striping.
