I started building it in my basement in Dayton, OH in April 1999. Then, moved it to Montgomery, AL where I rented a T-hanger at the Montgomery airport to finish the tail, build the wings, and start the fuselage. In October 2000 I moved it to my garage in Troy, IL where I worked on the fuselage until summer of 2003. Then, I moved it with me to Fort Walton Beach, FL where I completed it. With a lot of help from the hanger mates of EAA Chapter 108, I moved it to Crestview airport (CEW), about 30 miles from the one-car garage attached to my townhouse that had been its home for the last 2 years and performed the test flights. With exactly 40 test hours flown, I brought it to my new home in Colorado Springs, CO. It is now based at Meadow Lake Airport (KFLY) in Falcon, CO.
