Congratulations on the first flight of your new 9. Always good to see another RV in the air, especially the rare 9 TD.

Default You made the list.

Congratulations L.D.
I went to add you to my list of RV-9's and I already had you on the list.
Enjoy and good choice to convert to TD. It will be worth it.
