She is free now.
She deserves it. Flawless performance, by the Book of Vans, documented.
There were all necessary attributes; training, first flight and so on, every little thing an experimental test pilot needed. She saw redlines and high temps, landed on grass and kept pace with a powered parachute, was this much from Class A and never let me down.

Then cousin figured out my secret program and caught me in the air chasing baby clouds on my 15th hour
My DAR worked hard to get me sizable test box from two fsdos. But with RV speeds even this area was small. On one side was The City That Never Sleeps,
ocean to the east, then Hindenburg Forests to the south.
Those are strange woods. Firing ranges and amusement parks are good neighbors
The only thing to complain a bit is the quality of the air but it's DEP job, I just wash and go.
Many thanks from the bottom of my heart to Doug for this amazing resource and to all good people I've met through VAF. Keep pounding those rivets it's rewarding.
