Default N #

Ill have to say I was inspired by J Pratt when I met him this year at a fly-in at Johnson Creek Id.and he was telling me about his personal planes and called them by there nick names so when i picked up my project in Aug I started thinking about what i would call my plane an RV-6 which I call 6-GUN so my quest for a N# started and as close to it I could get was N66UN which I reserved so now just need to get to work so I wont have to pay $10 next year.

Mine was part of the theme of the aircraft. Mine being 'inspired by' a P-51D from the 78th Fighter Group/84th Fighter Wing in Duxford, England - hence my N number is N784DE.

Default N-Number

Wife's birthday...6/5/65. She's the model for some Victory Girl nose art.
The "S" for our last name, plus "Sierra" just sounds cool.

My birthday (Month, Day) and my initials. Been reserved for several years yet, and probably won't be on the airplane for another 3 or 4.

Both for my wife:

N146ML - Her birthday, 14th June, plus her initials

N816ML - the day we got engaged, August 16th, plus her initials

I guess I'm just going to have to build two

Default N911MV

Even though it's only reserved, N911MV will be the callsign I'll register my -8 once it's finished.
The 911 stands for the emergency response number in my city, as in Rescue 911 but copyrighted to our facility in Monterrey, Mexico.

As for MV, are simply the initials in Miguel Vidal

Cheers!

Well, I never built the RV-7 that I had dreamed of and probably never will, and bought a flying RV-6 instead. The builder picked a pretty good tail number for it too.

Since it's a -6 built for two, and is a Texas airplane, the number is N642TX.
