Our RV-6 was built by Jack Hakes. After over 3500 hours & 4 years of building, Jack finished the 159th RV-6 kit in 1991. The airplane was beautifully finished & won quite a few awards. Jack has worked on airplanes since 1948 and served as the Tech Advisor for EAA Chapter 49 & 1000.
We adopted the airplane on 19 Dec 04 with 761.5 hours on the engine & airframe. Our RV-6 has a full panel and many nice add-ons. The plane is now based at Boulder City, NV (61B).
