The Van's Aircraft RV-7, is a side-by-side two-seater, single-engine, low-wing homebuilt aircraft with either tricycle or tailwheel landing gear. The RV-7 is an all-around sport airplane, with excellent cross-country capability, fine aerobatic qualities and superior handling and capable of covering long distances at high speed. The RV-7/7A is sold in kit form and as a complete ready-to-fly aircraft by Van's Aircraft of Aurora, Oregon, USA. Van's Aircraft was founded in 1972 by the American aircraft designer Richard E. VanGrunsven. The RV-7 design is derived from the earlier RV-6, the main difference being a longer wing with slotted flaps to improve short-field capability. Up to now over 1000 RV-7/7A aircraft are completed. The ICAO Aircraft Type Designator for both Van's Aircraft RV-7 and RV-7A is RV7.

On 15 May 2013, the Van's Aircraft RV-7 s/n 73834 was registered PH-PLP in the Netherlands. The 2012-built Van's Aircraft RV-7 PH-PLP is powered by a single AVCO Corporation, Lycoming Division O-360-A1A engine. On 28 August 2018, when seen at Teuge Airport, the Van's Aircraft RV-7 PH-PLP 'Miss Behave' had the RNlAF 322 squadron emblem "Polly Grey" on the tail and a 'DUTCH HUNTER LEEUWARDEN' sticker on the fuselage.
