B-29: First Flight Ash Creek Field April 29, 2006

After doing the taxi trials, had engine vibration again & bubbles in the fuel lines when we had 3 or more engines running. Did not matter what ones. Took off the 4 blade props and it ran beautiful on all 4 engines with 11x7 APC props. Mike took the control after him and I discussed what the plan for the first flight would be. We were going to make 3 or 4 laps and set it down but when it got in the air and looked so good we went about 8 or 9 laps. Had a bit of a hard landing but everything is ok.
