Default RV-8 first flight (sort of)

My project landing in its new South Island (NZ) home. It should look quite different when it next sees the light of day! Hopefully this is the last time I have to move my project.. Loading her onto an undersized trailer and towing her onto/off the interislander ship using a small van overloaded with plane parts wasn't fun, but it did get a few laughs from onlookers!

Congratulations on the First flight, pretty unique place to build, guess the wife would not give up her parking space

Gidday Hugh,
Whereabouts in the South are you now located? The scenery is familiar but I just can't pick where!
