Restoration and Happy Christmas

Postby Robert West » Thu Dec 24, 2009 7:39 pm

At 1300 hours this afternoon after a complete, skids up, restoration, and five years in tea chests, N5315V was fired up successfully and pulled into the hover, at a very icy henstridge. A very happy Christmas eve for the owner and all concerned. We will submit a photographic record in the new year.
A very Happy Christmas to you all and happy hovering 2010. Bob at Vanguard.

Congrats and a Merry Christmas to you. Our "D" was sold last summer and am missing the the occasional hour that I'd bootleg from my son, (and partner in it) hope you have an enjoyable New Year flying the heck out of it! Mark Murdock Ketchikan, Alaska

I am the owner of N5315V and I have to thank Rob and the Vanguard Team for doing a great job on this project since July this year. A huge commitment has resulted in a very successful run-up. I look forward to further flight tests in 2010.
