Ken Balch visits the shop

Ken Balch, “Captain John” Sannizzaro, and yours truly. As usual, I’m the only one not smiling. But it’s there on the inside. Really.

You may have seen Ken Balch’s beautiful RV-8 in Sport Aviation or on Doug Reeves’ website. Ken is also an EAA Tech Counselor and has very generously offered to act as my tech counselor for the Mighty RV. He stopped by today to take an initial look at my work on the horizontal and vertical stabs. Friend and fellow RV builder “Captain John” Sannizzaro also stopped by to meet Ken and to talk about all things RV. In the pic above are Ken, John and yours truly. As usual, I’m the only one not smiling. But it’s there on the inside. Really.

The verdict? Ken gave my work so far a thumbs up, which was good news. I guess I wasn’t really too concerned, but it’s nice to get another set of very experienced eyes on my work. Thanks again, Ken.

John brought his soon-to-be finished rudder for some additional questions.
