What part of WA? Maybe I can buy you a cold one!

Default Wings bolted on for good!

A big day for Penni (RV7) today. She had her wings permanently attached with the close tolerance wing bolts! Tom stopped by to help me again today. As most know you can build most of this plane yourself but there are times a second person is really needed. Tom has built a few RV's and his rivet gun tapping method had these bolts installed and torqued in under 2 hours!

Default Full Throttle

I spent a little time on Sunday just boring holes in the sky around my home base. But I know a few other RVs had a little fun at Shaw AFB in South Carolina on both Saturday and Sunday.

Sequim, but airplane is now based out of Port Angeles (KCLM). But I get over to Spanaway to visit friends, so Eatonville is not far. I'll take you up on the offer one day.

Vlad, have updated my signature. Come visit.

Continued to chip away at post-inspection reassembly. When did reassembling the cockpit become such a difficult job?! Oh yeah, I remember now. Right after I put the wings on.

Got to fly the C-45 to the Shaw AFB Airshow with my co-pilot Quimby.
Burns a little more fuel than my RV's.
