Thumbs up Italian Best Homebuild Prize

In Italy we we have our mini 'Oshkosh' event.

It's the EAA Chapter 459 Annual Meeting with the Airshow, EAA Chapter Meeting, Exhibitors, Fly-in, Gliders, Homebuilts, Ultralights and Vintage Aircraft'.

This year it was in Reggio Emilia were we celebrate our 40th meeting

The first, most important prize is the Trophy named 'Gianfranco Rotondi', an University Professor who was a pioneer in the experimental aircraft Italian world.

Yesterday I won that Prize, it's a great achievement for me and I like to share here, without you, my friends, it was impossibile to reach it !

More pictures coming soon ....

Nice job, Luke. Beautiful airplane! I guess that they don't penalize you for having the wheel on the wrong end

No surprise, Luke. What a beauty! I've always admired how great your RV looks. Maybe I'll get the chance to see it in person some day. We used to travel to Italy often, but we haven't been back in about 13 years now. Looks like we're past due for another visit!

Grande Luca, complimenti!
Purtroppo non sono potuto essere presente al CAP quest'anno per motivi di lavoro, mi avrebbe fatto piacere scambiare quattro chiacchiere con te e gli altri costruttori di RV. Sar? per l'anno prossimo

Congrats Luke!

One question ... that picture looks strange. Is your RV-8 a special "jumbo model" ? When I stand next to mine RV-8, my shoulder is at the top of the cowl

Congratulations Luke! That is one sweet looking should be proud of your accomplishment - your hard work has obviously paid off! Now you have to fly it across the pond so we can see it at Oshkosh next year!
