After we taxied back, I asked who else was flying on this gorgeous evening. Greg Williams noted that he wanted to fly his gorgeous RV-7, but no one had asked to fly with him. I again 'volunteered', and Greg and I did a walk around and pre-flight of his red-n-black RV-7. Greg and Trish had been building their own RV for awhile, but found that the builder of N627RV had completed it in 2004 and had it up for sale, so they jumped into the completed RV-7 instead of finishing their own. Besides the beautiful finish and exterior paint job, the cockpit is equipped with two large Blue Mountain Avionics color displays and leather seats in a stunning interior. N627RV took during the 2009 EAA Fly-In at Arlington, WA.
Can I use the empennage I started years ago on a QB?
Generally yes, but remember that empennages are specific to the aircraft …you can’t install an RV-6 empennage on an RV-7 or RV-8, for instance.
