Default You donít see this very often

My RV7A was sitting static display at the Tinker AFB Airshow today and they moved it in a hangar due to weather. Nice hangar partner!



My Navy son suggested we should have a race and limit each aircraft to just 50 gallons.

Wow! I'm guessing he couldn't preflight with 50 gallons. Very cool.

They needed your plane to pretty the place up, stealth makes an airframe so asexual.

Trust me on this, the F35 is NOT ASEXUAL! I just wish it was “my ride”! The F35 pilot said his plane was much easier to fly than mine - somehow I think he was just being kind. He said his flying dream started with a Young Eagle flight in a Cessna 172. Please participate in the YE program - you never know when you’ll impact a future military fighter pilot.

You have to appreciate the young military pilots. They’re smart, dedicated and physically strong. They defend our country and are willing to fly into harms way to preserve the freedoms we enjoy. How we keep finding and grooming these young men and women in every generation is a testament to the values this country we call home has. May God continue to bless the USA.

Hmmmmm. I must be missing something. I only see an RV and a tip tank from what I think is a Bonanza. And since they gave you so much room at least park parallel with the lines.

I had an F22 pilot sitting in my 7a at Oshkosh three years ago and he was impressed with my GRT set up. I think he was being nice!
