    Anyone who knows who Chuck Yeager is needs to watch this. If you don't know who he is, watch this. He is still with us at 94 years old.

    Legend in the flesh Ryan. Chuck was to supersonic jets what Rushy was to hot chicks. Test pilot extraordinaire! Ha ha ha ha both well used to the boom and the after glow.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    One of the few pilots who was shot down in Europe in WW11 behind enemy lines that was allowed to fly more missions.

    Most pilots shot down behind enemy lines were not allowed to fly more missions for fear of them being shot down again and captured and then them disclosing the methods/people that got them out.

    I presume that is a kit you're building, which one did you go for?

    Vans RV-6. Yep, it's the full kit version, Moutere... no quick-build stuff here!

    Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Still plenty of work to go yet though.

    That's what I'm hoping!

    I've already flown a few RV's so I know what to expect, but nothing will compare to flying your own.

    Love Galland's attitude, body language - leaning forward, quite confident. A real warrior. As all of them were, despite the fact that they were on the "other" side.
