RV-8 and the Post Maintenance Flights
 
With the 2021 condition inspection completed all that remained was to perform a test flight to make sure that everything worked as advertised. Saturday 5/1/21 provided just enough decent weather to do that.

The weather on Sunday was better and I was ready to play. Carl took off about 20 minutes before me so I headed in the same direction. I caught up to him just north of Astoria and we flew home together. In the process, he managed to get some pretty good pictures of me.

Some video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ6oP6w83Ow

This is a picture that Carl cropped and zoomed I think it looks pretty good. Notice the clean tail wheel.


This is one of my favorites.




Can't even tell how dirty the belly is.

Beautiful. Can't wait until I can get some air-to-air photos of my plane.

That last photo looks like you have a canvas over the canopy. IFR Flight?

I think what you're seeing in the last photo is the canopy blocked by the wing tip.
