Looks good! You really kept the weight down. That's going to be a big plus.

Default Congrats Al

Way to go Al. Your about 60 lbs lighter than mine. Looks like you beat me in build time by 4 years. 160 hp is sweet in these.

Looks good Al, I will change your status on my RV-9 owner list. Time for you to change your signature line.

How many flying -9's do you have Mark? (I know of at least one more that is very close to its first flight.)
