Default RV-3 First flight

On April 21, 2010 RV-3 N815PT took flight for the first time over the fields of Illinois. To be exact C16 Frasca Field in Urbana Illinois. Was a 20 minute flight made by owner/builder Perry Testory. Great little airplane. IO 320 160hp, Catto three bladed prop. It will join my RV-6 and Cassutt for a summer of fun flying.

Wow,

Even if I couldn't fly anymore I'd be happy just sitting in that plane making airplane noises.
