Default First Flight

Finally got a perfect day, lots of sun, no wind, unlimited visibility and upper 50's so I flew 20 minutes south to First Flight airport, KFFA, in Kitty Hawk, NC. I toured the Wright Brothers National Monument and took a few pictures before heading home to KPHF. Now I need to plan a trip to the birthplace of the RV on the other coast!

Norfolk, VA

Incredible visibility looking south to the Outer Banks from the VA NC border.

My flying machine!

The first 4 flights!

Looking back at the ramp.

Beautiful aircraft for a beautiful destination! Very nice looking plane you built Kent. There is a thread in the archives begging for this picture

Where is N666BK?

Kent - beautiful airplane and great photos of Kitty Hawk!

Get some "grass practice" in 2015 and start exploring !

It's good to have more RV's in the MidCoast region!
