Super Modified KR-1 to Attend

Hey Guys,

I just received word that Richard Shirley will be bringing his highly modified KR-1 to the event.  This airplane may have started life as a KR-1, but with the extensive mods done by Richard, including a new wing, a Jabiru powerplant, and cruise speeds over 200 mph, its lineage to KR may be in question.

The cutting edge of garage technology!
