Default Your best or most awesome pic of your RV in the air

I just got inspired by the tread which is about showing us the best pics of RV's sitting on the ground, so I'm starting another tread about showing us airborne pics of RV's.

There must be A TON of great pics out there!

Here's a few of mine for a starter. The first two are taken during a 2-ship formation flight this Spring.

This last one is taken during a formation-flight in October last year:

Some how you might have seen it before, because I wrote about that flight in this tread:

We're planning another formation-flight with RV's + Vampire this summer, so hopefully I'll be able to post some pics in a while.
By the way; last week the two guys owing the Vamp bought their SECOND flying Vampire! (a single-seat this time)

Hopefully we'll be able to fly a formation with those two Vamps and some RV's too, but the fuelcost will be approx 100 dollars PER MINUTE just for the two Vamps, so we'll see.....

Anyway; let's see some great air-to-air shots people! That'll be really motivating for us all!
Regards Alf Olav Frog / Norway
First RV-7 completed, (bought partly finished from a US-builder) 305 hrs per July 2014, SOLD
Second -7 had first flight Feb 25th 2014. 100 hrs pr Jan 2016. Life is good!

Default This morning

Well since I just got free of my test hours a week ago...this is my best pic so far. With all the work,weather, kids sports etc it has been tough getting my family up. We decided my son and I would go up today for his first flight so at 5:50am, we got up, stopped at Tim Hortons (a Canadian thing) for coffee and a muffin, and were in the air at 6:30. He loved it and was at school for 8:30. Life doesnt get much better than an early morning plane ride with your son.

Taken at the West Coast Formation Clinic at Madera, California. I took the picture from Bob Mills' super 6. Now if I could just get a shot that wasnt through a canopy!
