Default N616JJ flies!

After 5 1/2 long years, RV-10, #40853, N616JJ took flight today. Ceiling was low and so was the flight. IO-540 from Barrett Precision Engines and MT three blade prop made for a smooth running flight. Of course it will take a bit of time to work out the bugs.

Congrats Dan!!!

Hopefully the wx in TN will be better than I'm experiencing in Ohio for flying off Phase I.

Thank you all!
Only those who have actually started flying can appreciate the feeling of FINALLY getting in the air! Now I have joined you.
