Rocketeers,

I got a ride last week end in Ken Flikkema's Rocket. This was my 50 something different aircraft I have flown (yes I get around) so I think I have the bonifides to say that the Rocket is a wonderful flying aircraft. Ken even thanked me for the ride!

For those of you building keep it up it is all worth it in the end.

Remember a lost receipt does not count toward the "expense" of building, or flying and aircraft!

If you are stuck and need help give me a call!

It's a beauty for sure! He would stop in Townsend for gas while flying off his 40hrs.

(This is a sincere complement on the paint job, I love bold & beautiful.)

I asked him about the paint. It was quite a story on how it all came to Bee. I also asked about the cost. Ken said "let's just say it was more than I had budgeted." Here's a other side view.
