Brian Kelly’s Radial RV-8R Flies (Again)


Brian Kelly has successfully flown his radial-powered Van’s RV-8. Formerly fitted with a Rotec radial, the airplane has been re-engined for a Verner 9S. Kelly said that aside from high temps on the first flights (somewhat to be expected), all is well.

We’re following this story so look for a feature on this project in an upcoming issue of KITPLANES.
