She's Aloft!! Debbie & Rich
VanTruen's "Twister "Plane in the air!!
This morning (7/7/2017) circa 9am Twister N600ZF lifted off from Dunn
Airpark, Titusville. Test pilot took her up, around the pattern,
made a nice landing and debriefed us.
Needless to say the happiest day of the decade for us, and a great relief.
Photos-A: Liftoff; B: Landing; C: Rollout (note popped oil door, missing
tail light lens); D: Test Pilot reassuring proud "parents."
If test pilot has time we might get another flight in after correcting minor
issues, but probably Wed. we have to pack her in the trailer so we can head
to Oshkosh, starting Saturday morning. After 5 1/2 years it works out Debbie
won't get to fly her until August.
Wish we could sleep for about a week now, but much to do before shipping
Thanks to all who helped and supported us through the challenge.
Rich & Debbie Van Truen
