Default First Flight

Passed the inspection on Friday and took the first flight Saturday! Thought my RV9 flew great. The 8 is Awesome. Slow build kit took 22-1/2 months.
Retirement is Great!

Default I think they want to see a picture of your plane Joe

I just want to see it in a race. Glad you are happy with your new airplane. The RV-8 is unquestionably the fastest RV of the lot.
