Default congrats

Well done Karsten, I like the paint scheme and the shade of blue. Looks like there are a few vortex generators installed.

Beautiful paint scheme Carsten, probably the best I've seen to my taste... plushy plugs to top it up, congrats

The whole aircraft ist festooned with vortex generators, prior to having flown Care to lift the mystery?

Since you are not too far away and the borders reopening, I'll hope to see that magnificent machine in flesh during the coming summer

Wow! those are NICE photos! He can take a pic of my plane ANY TIME! The tippers+ draggers are best looking RVs, bar none.

Note, though, this F-18 photo ... EGT issues, as evidenced by the different colored exhaust plumes. Even the big boys have issues.

Count the rivets

One nice day of July 2020 saw a bunch of Swiss RVs take part in a photoshoot mission... in turn we rejoined with the chartered Pilatus PC-6 Porter, from which 3 photographers kept firing at us

Björn Engelke pictures are breathtaking, and not RV restricted.
