You won't be jealous for long Mike. Good buddy Dennis Millsap came by Wetumpka with his new RV10 last week. We went riding around of course. I liked it every bit as much as another friend's Columbia 350, if that illustrates the point.

As for us poor folks......it sure is nice to be back in an -8.

Arguing on the internet is like having a competition to see who can hit a brick wall the hardest. You may win, but you're still an idiot.

Excellent Dan -

I rushed our 7 down the runway today but as we are still waiting for paperwork I couldn't get airborne.........

1st time we had all things together so it made sense to bed brakes, check steering, prop, electrics etc etc. All fine.

I hope to have similar photos and the big grin shot in the next 2 weeks

Naaa Allen, not in my shop. You see, I have this set of big wings scratch built by my own craftsmanship guru, Raymond Griffin. Ultra low speed airfoil; the next project is probably a Super Breezy.
