Default Demo flight grin

A little late posting this but I got my first taste of the RV grin after doing a demo flight with Zack from Van's a couple of weeks ago. Thanks Zack! Can't wait for my emp kit to arrive and get started with the build!

Demo flight with Mitch Lock in Van's N144VA, RV-14 (tailwheel) June 2, 2021.

Does grinning BEFORE the flight count?

Yes, Grinning before the flight counts cause you can't wash it off after the flight.
I started grinning back in 1991 and haven't got over it yet. Actually nobody gave rides back then.
Jump in, buckle up, and sit back Art

Really? Nobody? Ann & I got our first ride with Van himself in "Old Blue" at Sun & Fun, 1989.
