Congratulations to Bill Wood of Granbury, Texas, whose AeroVee powered, Tri-Gear Sonex (S/N 775) flew for the first time on June 7. “Bill Wood, 78 years young, of Granbury TX saw his tri-gear AeroVee powered Sonex fly for the first time this evening!” reported local Sonex pilot and friend, Wes Ragle. “Kevin Ross did the honors. Kevin is becoming the Sonex test pilot for the region 🙂 Kevin gave the same glowing report for Bill’s plane that he gave for mine. First flight was out of 0TX0 (Nassau Bay). A (wet) 2800′ grass strip. The N. Central Texas fleet grows :-)” Gold wings are on the way to Bill!
