Anson Needham's maiden flight on his home-built RV8 Bulawayo Bomber
It took Anson Needham about five years to build this plane on a part time basis with the help of Mossie. We celebrated his maiden flight on the 27 July 2014 with a champagne toast. His parents, Bob and Phoebe-Ann Needham were beaming with pride - the same pride that they displayed when Anson had his first solo flight on March 1988.
