September 24, 2021 – So, shall we go flying?
Bright and early on this Friday morning, I opened the hangar and pulled 174PM out into the sunshine.
My friend Chuck Wilson came out and we got the airplane ready to go. He was going to fly, and Jeff Hansen provided chase in his RV-4.
Chuck ran the engine for a few minutes.
We let it sit for a few minutes, then he took it out to fly.
There was a moment of rejoicing…
Chuck and I sat down for the debrief after the flight. Kinda took me back to my Air Force days. Him too, probably…
The worst problem I have to deal with is that the airspeed quit at 30mph.
