Before I dropped out, I built a KR-2. This was a great airplane and I felt proud that I was able to set a new standard for the aircraft in 1992 when I first showed the plane at the KR Gathering and at Oshkosh. Over the years I won approximately 15 awards. The liinks below are left on the site for a few of the articles I wrote about flying the plane, the way I built it and some of the places I went in recent years.
