|N64KR Black Bird KR2 First Flight on August 28, 2006|
|This is Wannabee in Jerry's Factory when Jerry and Dan took it to Dan's shop to be completed in May 2001.||Made it to the airport and got inspected Nov. 17 2005. Engine problems have prevented me from getting her into the air, but progress is being made.||On August 28, 2006, N64KR took to the air. Working the ailerons and elevator, briefly, demonstrated that the little craft was ready to go.|
1/23/2005 The interior of the plane is finished. I used the very nice embroidery that Steve Glover sent to me. The fact that the rest of it is in the same color and looks much the same as Steve's, is just a coincidence as these colors were picked out shortly after the plane was moved to my shop.

The Black Bird is ready for the 40th anniversary of the KR, to be held in Mount Vernon, Il. this month. Weather permitting, the Black Bird will depart KCUB for KMVN on September 27th.
|Friday, December 30, 2005, Mark Langford flew his "very fast" "highly modified" KR2S, to KCUB for a visit. We did not have much time due to fog having delayed his departure, but it was great and I really enjoyed the opportunity to handle the stick on his plane for a short flight. Those flaps on his plane really make a difference.|
