Cool to see you on on here! She's still flying really well, such an awesome airplane. Have an hour of actual in it now, and can't stress how nice that panel is! Currently getting ADSB installed and the conditional done. I'm flying it in to Oshkosh this year. I'll be there Friday before through Tuesday morning, feel free to stop by and say Hi

First off I couldn't think of a name for the plane, but I've stolen your line. She's the "Van's Airbus" now, the "Bus" for short

As for looking out the window, I have the GRT Vision HUD working with it (will have a review once I've done some IFR with the HUD). Now you can enjoy the panel AND watch the world go by

I'll definitely look for you at Osh this year. I'm glad to hear the panel is working out well. That was a major upgrade some years ago but it's good to know it's being put to good use!

The name suits the machine that's for sure:-) Looks very flash indeed.

Smokey yours is hardly broken in. Mine turns 29 next month. The scary part is that I was 39 in the photo and now 68!
