    That's great! Are you going to have a whole squadron soon?

    The one on the flyby flew in Jan 2020, 7 times. It was bought as a project having not flown since 1991. It needed some work and that was done.
    Pilot reports great handling, take off is at 50kts and top speed so far 140kts. More vids, pics to follow.
    There are four more WARs in Arlington Tx, KGKY, associated with EAA34.

    We have four at EAA34 in various stages. One should be flying this summer.

    What an absolute garbage video. Garbage music, garbage 3 second quick cuts. Who thinks that is appealing 12 year olds with attention deficit? Do 12 year olds buy airplanes now?

    Please do it again.

    Show us the video that you made, featuring the homebuilt airplane that you restored, or built, flying, so we can judge your skills.

    His criticism of the video should not be dependent on his capbility to do a vdeo. I happen to be a world class and highly experienced quality assessment specialist for female breasts, without actually having a pair.

    An art form that I have been intently studying for decades.
