Default The first homebuilt flew here

I flew east to Germack, Ohio to get the Whirlwind prop rebuilt (its been 13 years). Stopped off in Dayton for the Hamfest and to tour the huge Airforce Museum. While there I visited the Wright Brothers sites and it got me thinking???? Why not go to Kitty Hawk, NC KFFA and see that too. Was only a 2.8 hr flight and what a cool experience. I highly recommend it. Now I tell my friends that I flew my home built to the first place a home built was flown !
RV 7 "eh?" C-GOYA - 450 hrs
RV 10 C-GOOH - 475 hrs
R44 225 hrs
Aerostar 601P 130 hrs
grounded by stroke Sept 3/07 - and back flying Feb 2010. Don"t ever take flying for granted !

This is a beautiful picture Wayne. What a great place KFFA is. I am coming there two times a year on average and it never gets old.
Where is N666BK?

Default Great photo

As cool as KFFA is, I think it's still underrated. Next time you're in that area, head south a bit and check out Ocracoke Island. Really nifty.
