So it begins

Last Friday I took some time off from work and went south to Aurora Oregon to pick up the first piece of my kit.  This kit includes the tail of the airplane, aka the empennage. While there I got a chance to fly the RV-9A demo airplane they have.  WOW!  I am going to really like this airplane.

On the way back I stopped in Puyallup at Thun field to meet a friend, Jeff, and purchase his pneumatic squeezer.  Jeff built an RV-7A and was kind enough to answer many questions, show me his airplane, and take me up in his RV.  Today I can say that I have finally done a roll in an aerobatic airplane.  :-)

Anyway I got home and this is what my airplane looks like so far...
