Default First flight

Our nearly 10 year build finally took to the skies today. It flew perfect. Smooth and FAST. The public acknowledgement of everyone who helped me along the way would be difficult, but I absolutely have to say thank you to my wife for all of the support and encouragement along the way. The build process has been amazing, but what I have come to appreciate more are the people that I have become friends with. Simply due to our shared obsession with these amazing machines. I'll offer this bit of encouragement to everyone building. My build was a constant battle between time, money, and ambition. But today when our plane took off it was absolutely clear that it was all worth it. Keep banging those rivets and blue skies ahead!

Congrats! What day and time did you break ground? Odd question I know but I flew my RV-10 for its inaugural flight on this past Saturday morning about 10AM Pacific. :-)
