Pierre is right (although a quick re-read of Paul's log book review indicates the RV-1 as we see it today is of 1965 vintage !). I would love to hear what Vans thinks of the "first RV" not that 46+ years have passed. I'm so thankful he has been a part of aviation !
An a big thanks to the Friends of the RV-1 !
Perhaps one of us will get the Luck chance to ask Vans personally during the EAA webinar
on the 28th !
