I was in Wichita for the week of 22 March, doing some Global Express avionics update flight testing. Last week was a busy week at work here in Ottawa, but I did get out to the paint shop first thing Tuesday morning to discuss a few details with Korrey. He had just started laying out the hawk graphic on the side of the fuselage. It is looking really good.

The green is a vinyl stencil. The shape compares quite nicely to the picture I took of the Golden Hawk Sabre at the National Air Force Museum of Canada at Trenton, ON.

The weather is absolutely fabulous this weekend, and it is killing me to not be flying the RV-8. I’ll be on the road again this week, and hopefully the aircraft will be ready to leave the paint shop when I get back home.
