My RV-building pal, Brad Benson, fired up his RV-6 engine today for the first time at South St. Paul's Fleming Field (KSGS). He estimates 6-8 weeks before he's flying.
Shortly before that, Brad's hangar mate -- Vince Bastiani -- invited me along for a ride to Red Wing in his RV-7 and back. Bryan Flood, who has an RV-9 formed up for a flight of two to Red Wing.
Update After all of the festivities, the B-25, "Miss Mitchell" dropped by.
