Default My new 7A

Just took delivery today. Thanks to Tom Berge for pre purchase help and Michael Karatsonyi for getting the plane through customs and ferry pilot!

On another note, I would strongly suggest getting into the habit of disconnecting the tow bar once you have moved the airplane. This may help prevent a takeoff with it connected or prevent prop/engine damage.
Thanks for the advice.... That was a photo from the previous owner..

Are you sure it isn't the tow bar attached warning light? Kidding of course... Congrats on the purchase, that is a great looking plane!
