Baron Marshall’s RV-8 | Bend, OR RV-8 #82351

Hey folks,

Just wanted to say that after 14 year 6 months and 22 days, as well as, 7 moves….I finally know the RV grin! N762BM (RV-8) “Russian Bare” took to the skies with ease. Her 200hp IO-360-A1A (shoehorned into a James Cowl) powered us through 180kts true @ 5000′. I can’t wait to see how she does with the gear and wheel fairings on! All in all a benchmark day with friends and family to cheer us on. I could not have made it through this journey without them….thank you all!! Special thanks to my Bride for all the patience and love shown through some frustrating and fun moments!
