I had the opportunity to meet John in LIPB (Bolzano) where I was with my RV-8 for helping him for custom documents.
Then we flew together to my home base (LIDT) where he spent a couple of days to change oil, filter and fixing some little issues in our team hangar.
It was a great experience to know a man who does the world flight in an RV.
Today he took off @ 09:45 local time and now he has arrived in Crete (Greek)
Follow his trip (https://memoryflightrtw.weebly.com/tracking.html
), he's a good person and I hope you have the fortune to meet him during his adventure.
Here are some photos and a little simple video I took during the escort flight from LIPB to LIDT.
