Ken Beene’s RV-4 Flies For The First Time

Filed under: Member Projects — joncumpton at 7:33 pm on Sunday, December 17, 2006

KenBeeneRV4One.JPGThis last week saw the first flight of Ken’s RV-4 at Airlake. This is Ken’s second RV project — he previously built an RV-6A. Ken reports that the new airplane took 1900 hours to construct. Power comes from an O-360-C1G Engine with a Hartzell Blended Airfoil Prop. Empty weight is 1025 lbs, and the paint scheme is from an F-4-F Wildcat from Fighting Six in 1941. You can see construction photos at http://www.mninter.net/~kbeene/
