The monsoon season finally let up after two weeks of solid rain, so Darwin and I took the opportunity to fly to GMU for lunch and to get some photos with the EAA B-17:

Will do, but we'd like to see your plane! The B-17 will be at GMU tomorrow and Sunday, too, for anybody that's interested.

On weekends, I can fly the 8 NM over.

I hope to see you tomorrow.

Bill Repucci drove over from his work and met us at GMU for lunch today. (It's so sad that the poor guy has to work ) It was great to finally meet Bill and hear about his RV-9. The three RV builders were all talking about riveting techniques and I just sat there and smiled. Bill and I both had "The Wildcat" Buffalo Chicken wrap. Mmmmmmm! Man, those are good! 90F on the ramp when we departed.

It was great to meet you and the rest of the Lunch Club.

I think the reason we talked RV's was because we are all secretly jealous of your beautiful LancAir!

If I have a day's notice and my schedule allows, I'll work from home and fly the 11.5 miles over to GMU to meet all of you.

You are right, the Wildcat is good!

I like rivets. I actually have several of them in my plane. I should have pointed out the two rivets on my aileron trim tab I'm really looking forward to seeing your RV-9 and I'm sorry your airport is too short for me to fly over.

The Brotherhood flew out to Rutherfordton for lunch today. We had four RVs, a C-170, and my Lancair 235. Owen's RV-12 was way down the line and so was Mike's beautiful green C-170...so they're not in the group photo. Lunch was excellent at 57A. It was fun.

It was fun catching up with you. Mike and Emily have a 120, the 170 is a four place plane, but you are right, it is a nice 120!

When we left, we circled Mt. Mitchell before heading home.

Where's the next lunch?

Oh, 120, not 170. Numbers just confuse me Tell me again who owned the RV-10? Yours and his were both beautiful planes.
