huge pic
Boy do I have a lot to learn about computers. It took me 45 min to get to the picture through imageshack and get it copied and sent. I thought I had it at 700 pix but guess I didn't. Sorry! Will try to do better next time.

[ed. No sweat, Steve! dr]

Flying with bifocals??
"...Flying RV3 with Bifocals - I didn't need those when I started the project in 1991"

Alex, I think there are a great many of us who can relate to that great picture...sort of redefines "4 eyes" doesn't it? Nowadays there are some nice sunglasses with bifocal lenses in them already for about $100.

I do like the look however! After a certain age, one really doesn't care too much what somebody else might think about one's looks. Just ask my wife..

My RV-3
This is my RV-3 that I acquirred in 2005. It was built by Rexfor Peters. I am the third owner of the plane. It has 150hp 0-320. The photo was taken at the Millinocket Municipal Airport. The mountain in the background is Mt. Katahdin which is 1mi high and is the start/end of the Apalachain Trail.

I've this "flame plane" up close at OSH. It is the most impressive paint job I have ever seen. Truly, a work of art.

ShannonEvans 11-05-2008 07:03 AM

Just a question? Wonder if a similar effect could be done with a gloss black base & vinyl wrap with the flames? Similar to the wraps NASCAR uses.

Love the paint job.

Hi Mike,

Hope you'll bring your RV-3S (what is the "S" for?) to the Ottawa area this summer for some of the fly-ins.

RV-3 First flight
On April 21, 2010 RV-3 N815PT took flight for the first time over the fields of Illinois. To be exact C16 Frasca Field in Urbana Illinois. Was a 20 minute flight made by owner/builder Perry Testory. Great little airplane. IO 320 160hp, Catto three bladed prop. It will join my RV-6 and Cassutt for a summer of fun flying.

Louise Hose 05-02-2010 11:31 AM

It sure looks beautiful and makes me excited to see our project completed. Enjoy, and stay safe!
