Default RV-8 and the Alternate Plan

Saturday (3/3/18) was a slightly better day on the wet side of the mountains in Washington State. We had planned a trip to the dry side, but lots of clouds over the mountains made that seem unwise. Anyway, it looked a lot like this.

Nice Video! It is visible that you have installed VGs on your wing. Why did you do that? Did you have any Problems?

Thanks for the video! Just up having my first cup of coffee and it was a nice way to wake up!

I didn't install the VG's, they were there when I bought it. In fact, they were there when the guy I bought it from bought it. For the kind of flying I do I don't think they really help, in fact they may cost a couple of knots.

They were installed before paint, so if I can find a place to touch up the paint I will probably remove them (they come off quite easily).

That's at least 3 RV-8s in Puget Sound area 3-3-2018, I met Andy Karmy gassing up to head out at Crest when Marilyn and I were headed to Skagit Regional to visit with a T-18 friend at the restaurant, then we were off to Lopez Island for a walk in one of the most beautiful settings (feed the fitbit!) Then back to Kiona (WN-55) and around snow falling on Mt Rainier. What a Day!

Three RV-8's in the Puget Sound area? There were three just on the ramp at Chehalis while we were there. It was almost a fly in.
