Default N964JB First Flight

Hey ? big day today. N964JB got air under her tires for the first time.... almost 4 years to the date my tail kit arrived (6/4/2008). The only issue was an oil temperature sensor that was a bit flakey.

Thanks to Dale Meyers for all his building help and for flying chase in his RV-9A... we got some great air to air shots. Thanks also to Steve Flattum (test pilot) for a completely uneventful first flight and Roger Doran for taking some great pictures

This afternoon I pulled the cowl to inspect the firewall forward area after the first flight, and everything looked great. If the weather cooperates tomorrow, we are planning on flying again tomorrow evening.

I think I will sleep well tonight!
