Default First Flight N242BD

N242BD had a successful first flight this morning, launching at first light on a cold (13F), beautiful Montana morning. Flight went well, a few minor squawks. Engine ran great, no high temps probably thanks to the cold ambient OAT and the oil cooler valve. Thanks to all who have helped, I'll be making sure to thank you personally. Wow, what an airplane - thanks to Van's for such a great product.

I started July 1, 2009, Serial Number 40084. I'll get pictures up sometime soon.

Okay, that may be old, but it was new to me. Very funny.
