Default 1st $100 burger with the wife in the new bird

Compared to the breaking rumour of Bob Collins' first flight, this is minor.

BUT, I did finish Phase 1 this AM.
Afterwards, my wife (Diane) and I quickly hopped down to GMU for lunch, did some airborne sightseeing and stopped by the WNC Air Museum open house (0A7) before coming home.

Most excellent day.

SO, Hurry up and post, Bob. I want to congratulate!

Thanks for noticing the oversight.
In order for me to host the pics, I put an entry into Expercraft.
I went into more detail there (with names of the guilty)

Diane is included in the above post now.

Congrats on your first passenger....saw you stop for fuel at KLQK yesterday and met you a few days before on one of your fuel stops at LQK.
