Hello everyone, been a lurker on the forums for a while now and have been reading everything I can. Finally started looking for an rv4 pretty seriously a few montha ago. Well as of a week and a half ago i am a proud new owner of a rv4. Its the first plane I've ever owned and pretty excited to put a lot of hours on it this summer. Heres a couple pics.

Nice plane! You will love the -4 I'm sure. If ever in the Carolinas, stop by 8A7 in central NC. Several -4s around here.

Nice choice For a first plane. It's was also my choice. Well done! I don't spect you'll be wearin that coat while flying it :-)

First rule for a new airplane owner... Don't post exterior pics without an interior pic! Nice lookin bird you've got there.

The normal saying to a new plane owner is to say "keep the dirty side down", but in this case I'll just say... Congrats and be safe.

Default congrats

Congratulations on your First Airplane!
You will love it!
I purchased my -6 many years ago and still can't believe I am lucky enough to own and fly it!
It is an education and a journey, embrace it.
Love the RED WHITE and BLUE....classy!
