Vlad, great news, great pictures, and a great accomplishment. Isn't it great to say "I think I will take the RV for a spin today"?

Congratulations Vlad! When you took your demo ride, you were like a kid in a candy store, now YOU own that store! See you at Oshkosh in 2012.

Default Russian for "Hobbs"?

The older Russian fighters carried so little fuel that they timed their flight times down to the second with chronometers in the panel.

Isn't it lucky that half the world doesn't use "Metric" clocks, with 10-hour days?
