the unspoken word: respect

Donald Rumsfeld: We know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns ? the ones we don't know we don't know.

Congratulations, Bill. Nice job. Hoping to see her in North Alabama (Decatur, Cullman or Moontown) some time...after the Phase 1, of course.

Congrats, I happened to be thinking about my first flight, which was a year ago today, when I read your post.

You will really enjoy flying the 14. Well done.

Perfect, no tendencies, better than expected. The thunderbolt IO-390 is so smooth. Really happy with it.

Thanks everybody

Really exciting to see! Keeps the dream alive.
I think Steve's comment "respect" was well stated.
