Got the maiden in on Saturday. Plane flew great. Had to give it a little bit of up and a little right trim and that's it. I was pretty wound up during the maiden. When I landed I didn't correct with aileron and wing tipped it. Didn't hurt it any. The cross wind just tipped it a little. I'm in maintenance mode with the plane. Have to double check the nuts and bolts make some adjustments to the rigging cables. Thursday should be a good flying day. I'll try to take it out again and get some video.

Here are a bunch of pictures my friend Jenni Alderman took. Enjoy. I Did.

It is really hard to beat the look of a biplane in the air. She looks just fantastic Tom.
