Bringing a close to an eight-year build, Bill Bailey’s beautiful RV-7A took to the skies today, piloted by one of the best RV test pilots around — the venerable Billy Waters. Billy cleared the runway at 3:35PM and put the new Bailey RV-7a through its paces for about an hour, remaining in the general area of 9A1. According to Billy, the aircraft flew very well with no problems. Congratulations to Bill on a great build!
On Friday, January 14, long-time Chapter member Oscar Moffitt passed away suddenly. Please keep Oscar’s wife JoAnn and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this painful time.
Oscar was our engineer and fabricating genius. Give him a box of toothpicks and some resin and he could build a spaceship. We’re going to miss him terribly.
