Apr 13th, 2016 - Gale Partch's RV-6 being flight tested by Bob Edison

Congrats to Gale, Bob and Rob for jobs well done!
Not only did Gale work very hard on his own airplane, he also spent countless hours assisting others on their homebuilt projects. Many friends and Chapter 42 members contributed to the successful completion of Gale's RV-6 but Chuck Hosack, Mark Barker and Jonathan Fant worked tirelessly on the final completion steps. Without their expertise and unselfish dedication, the plane might well be a couple more years in the hangar. Although there are too many more to list, we would like to point out that Burke Wicke's, and Tom Lawhorn's help and experience in the last stages of the build were extremely valuable.
