Talking N748PK first flight

Yup, it finally happened:



The photographic evidence isn't the highest quality, I'm afraid. Couldn't find a good observer/photographer to ride w/chase, and chase--wisely--maintained loose formation throughout, especially while snapping an iPhone pic.

(He thought it was a great shot of his RV-7A's wingtip, though. )

Gory details, including the Apollo 11 flight computer moment in an otherwise no-surprise flight, may be found here.

I dunno, Vlad. The secret to having as much fun as you with 666BK isn't letting her fly naked?

Congrats! When you're done with phase 1 and wander out to KHAF, let me know! I should have my -7 build in a hangar by then. Excellent work!
