John Keen’s RV-7 | Gold Coast, Australia RV-7 #71831
John’s report on the first flight of his new bird!
”Hi, my RV-7 VH-BBU had her maiden flight yesterday (Aug 17) in the hands of the legendary Nigel Arnot. He reports that she flies beautifully and all temps and pressures where they should be. Many people have contributed to this result, and the skills I’ve developed during the build have led me into my dream career – restoring vintage warbirds. Couldn’t be happier with the outcome and very much looking forward to many rewarding hours flying her. A huge thank you to everyone at Van’s for this wonderful little aeroplane.”
