Oops, sorry, I think I have fixed it, set to public. I need to stick to things I know how to do or find some kids to coach me.

Isn't it an amazing feeling when the stuttering and sputtering smooths out into a purr?

The night following our first engine start I couldn't sleep - was just way too excited, re-running that mental video of the engine running as sweetly as I had dreamed it would.

Congratulations! Now it's on to the rest of the 101 tasks between here and first flight. What a wild and wonderful thrill ride it is!
