A quite unusual RV...(I believe it was an RV-6A)...visited the Orcas Island Fly-In (WA) this past weekend...one about which I would like to know much more.

It was BY FAR the quietest RV I have EVER seen and just barely heard. It was literally whisper-quiet. I've been told it had a 4 bladed prop though this I cannot confirm to be true.

We see a lot of RVs from "down Sound" so I'm quite familiar with their typical Lycomings.

In fact, it was the quietest airplane on take off I've ever heard in my life, other than a couple of electrically powered ones.

I'd be most grateful for any information on it's owner, power plant, and propeller anyone can post.

Fred
