Default N131RV Back in the air

After an 11 year wait, N131RV took to the air again today. Last flown on December 23, 2011. The flight was completely uneventful, except for the landings. Been a very long time since I landed a taildragger. I built this baby, with loads of help from my brother Sam, starting in 2001, first flight 2007. Just over 1020 hours on the hobbs meter now. What a ride!!!
