Hey all,
I had the distinct privilege of aiding Les Krumel in the first flight of N48LK today. This immaculate bird took to the skies for an awesome .5 today. I know everyone's jaws will drop when you see this fine craft. Pix and movie of first flight will follow when I figure out how.

Congratulations! That has got to feel awesome! Is that another Thorp I see in the background in the hanger? Is that Morioraty NM?

Yes the Tigress was in the background as well as a Pipstrel something or other. And yes, that's Moriarty NM where Les is based.
