Arrow Factory Demo Flight RV Grins post your pic!

Here's a pic taken the day of my first RV flight taken late last year.
I think I had the RV grin during the whole flight in the factory demo N137RV. (Thanks Joe B.).

Anyone know how many demo rides have been given in Van's demo planes?

Post your pic of your RV grin in a factory plane!
We'd all love to see it I'm sure!

I too tried to take it all in, lucky my wife was there to take pics, I though a lot more people would have photos of their factory ride!

Great to see current RV Grins too!
Nice pic Ed! 4000 hours, congrats that's a lot of hours and distance covered, 166 days that you were not on planet earth! I've only got 96 days worth... Any major unexpected maintenance issues come up in that time (for the plane)? M

This was taken too long ago with an early digital camera, so it's hard to see the grin. But check out the color of the Factory plane. Anyone who got theirs in Old Blue?

Dave Domeier gave me my RV grin when I got a ride in his -7A, but I have 8.3 hours in "Old Blue" thanks to getting transition from Mike Seager this past summer.
