Wietse, it has been delayed till 8 june. The thing's still in the states.
I would expect further delays though. My luck, because as it turned out next saturday I wouldn't have been able to make it Smile

Website no longer mentions a date. "delayed pending FAA approval for the departure"...

George,

The irony of your comment is that had things gone to plan, it would have landed in the UK (Biggin Hill or Manston) during your time here.

PS: As an update from my "man on the spot", I'm told it did a two hour test flight yesterday from Avra Valley (now more correctly known as Marana North West Regional) and is running perfectly. The only problem is getting the bit of paper from the FAA - the ferry permit - which is taking more time than expected.
There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots
