Ah-Ha! See?,,,Still more evidence that recently released photos of the "RV-5" are actually Spy photos of the RV-15!

918 is a great number, but I think the 919 would have been better.

yes, the date is April 2021? It takes a while to get a new engine out the door and be adopted. Looks like Kitfox may be trying it out....
