Very nice! Can't wait to read Paul's report about flying the plane that started it all.

Paul said it flew like an RV-1 (rimshot). ;)

Congratulations, everyone!

The designer designed and built. The owners and caretakers took care. The leaders led. The restorers restored. The donors donated, and are still donating.

Next, the fans will see her in glory, first on tour, and then on display.

The first RV to crossover from homebuilt to vintage! What a great day!
