Building an RV-12

My Dad is amazing.

My Dad, who farmed for 40 years, decided to build himself an airplane upon retiring. In 2 years, he built himself an RV-12 airplane. It is nearly complete now, ready to fly this week!

Chris and Asher took a ride in my Dad's other plane first, then went and checked out the RV-12, taxing it down the runway. Chris was thrilled! What an amazing accomplishment! Not too many people can say they built an airplane, so this puts Dad in a class of few. Really, he is in a class all of his own anyway. :)

Congratulations to my Dad on such an amazing accomplishment! We are so excited for "Bessie's" (the other worman, as my mom has nicknamed the plane) first flight, maybe this week!!
