Vince, that's the infamous BTE Avenger! It's been in my Builders Gallery for years as a "Mystery Plane". Did not know it was yours originally.

Here's a link to the Builders Gallery - Scroll down towards the bottom...

I guess the mystery is solved But why Avenger?

BTE Venture 60 (Avenger) ????

Bruce - That picture was not taken by me, and I have more of them, have to search.
I moved to south Florida in 2001, and guess your V-60 was built around 2002, ordered direct from you. Why I put the name Avenger on the wing, don't know.
I have the original decals you supplied, and I think the plans are in the attic. The "Bruce Tharpe Engineering", decals were done by me.

Here are some pics of my Venture 60. I purchased the plane used and stripped it down. Recovered with Ultracote and monokote.
Flies great. OS fs91.
