RV-building acquaintance Ted Chang had his first flight last week in the RV-10 he built.
Today, Ted reported on Facebook, he had an in-flight fire, four miles from the airport and had to make an emergency landing.
It's a testament to Ted's flying ability that he was able to land safety. But as a builder it sure gives me pause. Am I up to responding to a similar emergency? Am I building properly? Is that fuel line too close to something?
There's still a long way to go before my plane is finished, but there is a creeping doubt that is making its voice heard.
