Default Grinnin' in my new RV-4

I had a friend ferry it up to VA from GA last month, and after a weekend of transition training out in Texas with Bruce Bohannon, felt confident for my first flight. That was two days ago and I haven't stopped smiling.

Thanks to all in VAF who've assisted me through the selection and purchase of this amazing little machine!

Default Hey you are pretty close to us!

Congrats on the new machine. We live in Bristow and based at manassas. Hope to meet you sometime! Built/Flying RV7, formed three way partnership after a couple years and now building an RV10 in the back of the hangar.
