I flew over Limestone AFB six years
ago. Couldn't get permission to land that time. David Valcik did a great job organizing a private visit to the legendary airfield and a dozen airplanes were granted landing rights.
Weather was marginal that day. I started trekking toward ME16 from Bethel ME while Governor led his squadron from Belfast. There was a solid overcast for most of the trip.
I enjoyed smooth air on top while Belfast guys stayed under the deck for a good beating. My autopilot Leo was bored. He trimmed the airplane off and once in a while put light pressure on rudder to keep heading precise. RV9 is a very stable airframe in smooth air.
Hour and half flew quick. The radio on schoolhouse frequency told everybody what to do. There were 10 RVs, a Piper, a Cessna and a Bonanza in the group. There was a hole in the sky over the airbase and I made a wide turn over Canada to fit in.
Left crosswind runway one.
Look at those parking spots.
Control tower and concrete bunker/hangar.
Maintenance hangar which could house up to six B52 bombers. Our parking area was nearby.
Left base RWY 1.
