Vlad,

You ought to get Jeff to put you up this weekend and come in for Saturday's Thunder over Louisville fireworks show. AeroDynamix will be part of the airshow.

I might need to carpool with Jeff to Cynthiana next weekend so I can ride in the Vette. Hope the weather is good so we can head over there.

He sent me an email to let me know he flew with you after you posted your mystery photo. Your one sneaky ex-Russian.

Default Returning from Jeff's trip

Flight back was easy. Mr1016 was working servo again.











I got bored, switched off all apple products and pushed chronometer button. For 15 minutes Mr1016 was using Whiskey compass to hold heading. He sweated but stayed exactly on track. He could easily do 15 more minutes Now he knows what he needs in his future RV. Autopilot!!!

Somewhere here he was in college several years ago.









Mr1016 can talk. He talked us into a nice downtown tour. It was Sunday and a game with associated TFR was about to kick in. We enjoyed aerial, then landed somewhere and were treated royally.

Cirrus to the left.









Antique Golf to the right.







Pretty lady picked us up and drove to Pittsburgh downtown.




There is the one and only top burger joint. Forgot the name








After two hours we left. Somebody really liked my antler cockpit handle.







Jeff, we will be BAAACK!!!

Talking Coming back

It's about time Jeff. I am coming to check the level in that bottle I marked two years ago. Will see how fast your RV9 grows. Different autopilot this time.

We are all prepared for your arrival. Maybe we can use this trip and your photographic and celebrity status to update the Jeff RV status.

Vlad did make it Thursday. For some reason the bourbon bottle has less liquid and some cute girl was spotted in his plane. Not sure how that happened either.

I will let Vlad make the official update, and news to share. It was great to met another local RV builder Fearless also. Thanks guys.
