Turbo,

I have always said that there are only two kinds of airplanes in the world...

RV's and everything else!

Default RV and others...

I've found, what I believe, for me, to be the perfect combination.

An RV-4 and J-3 Cub.

You are admiring the paint job....I like RV's painted or not.

Climb into and fly an airplane never painted and the experience is the same, they are a delight to fly.

John,
I respectfully disagree.
Actually you are correct, there are two types of airplanes, "Fighters and Targets."
The RV is in the target category
V/R
Smokey

PS: The F-16C+ being my fighter of choice ...
