RV Central News!

My 2007 RV8 ?Borrowed Horse? has been gone for a year now. After 750 hours of pure fun flying, I still miss having that plane. So,,,,
I am building again. I found a Fuselage and Empenage Kit close enough to take a look at. The construction / workmanship are perfect as can be. I bought it. It?s here now and I?m on it.
It will need a wing kit and it came with a Show Planes Fast Back Kit that I will not use. It?s Uncrated and un touched....
So excited to have another RV! This will be my 5th personal RV build.
Reserved N6YH will be on the new ?Borrowed Horse?
N6 Yah Hoo!!!

Congratulations, Jay! How exciting. I can't wait to get to that place myself -- that is, looking at a new project in the barn.

'Borrowed Horse II'

Outstanding news Jaybird!!!! I miss seeing you in an -8. Something about the world isn't right when an -8 isn't parked near you.

Jay: Is it time for an intervention?

Considering it's an RV-8, you're good to go. ;-)
