metal airplane and Grand champion. Here is the letter Rich Jankowski sent me and a pic." I had sold my RV-10 and bought my old one from my former partner. My wife Pat, and I did a lot of clean up work and tender loving care and we flew it to the Copper State Fly Inn at Casa Grande, AZ this weekend. We with great reluctance put the plane up for judging and to our surprise we won both "Best Metal" and "Grand Champion". We were really shocked but very happy with the awards.
The weather was great for the show and the flight home. The flight home was nonstop CGZ to CXO: 976 sm, 4+35, 49.9 gal. This works out to: 213 MPH and 10.9 GPH. The tail winds were not real strong and we were cruising at 205 MPH at about 11.2 GPH for most of the way. "
