Default an RV-8+a photo+an aviation museum=a story to share

I have a photo from the loop exit point-down took that summer, I'm over my home airport.

Here @LIDT we have a beautiful aviation museum and the director saw my photo and ask me the file.

So now we have an RV-8 doing aerobatic into the Gianni Caproni Aviation Museum in northern Italy.

Here the pics, in the last one the guy who did the shot (RV8 builder too) :

Experienced RV-8 Pilot trick Pierre - keeps the wind and rain off the back of your neck due to the ever present leak up the rear canopy track. Oh...wait a minute....that's what the person in the back seat is for!

Really nice picture Luke!
