Default First engine start!

All I can say is...WOOOOOHOOOOOOO! The Lycoming IO-360-M1B started right up and ran just fine. Did a few short runs, prop cycles, taxi to condition the brakes, etc., during the afternoon. Smooth as can be...

Thanks to my buddies Alex and Jim for their help the last week getting her ready for this milestone...now, it's on to the inspection!

Default Congrats!!!!

.... on a bigtime milestone day. That moment, when the heretofore static beast comes to life, is unforgettable.
