Default Van's at Mojave Experimental Fly-in 4/21

They have announced that Rian Johnson from Van's will be at Mojave for the fly-in this weekend. It's not clear if this will be an 'official' Van's presence.

Is anyone else from VAF planning on attending. I hope to be there with my RV-8 puddle-jumper.

BIG Puddle!!

I’ll probably miss the event - I’m in Oshkosh until Friday and get back to Reno that night - and that’s after last week in Florida, so I think I’ll stay put for at least a few days.....

I'll be there with about 15 other members of my flying club, and happy to meet with other builders if there's interest!

Mojave is lowering their gas prices $.50/gal to help support the event. I'll have the RV 7 out and also get to drag out Ares to support. Weather looks good!

Hey Mark, Some of us from the flying club are planning on camping at Kern Valley Saturday evening. You, or anyone else, are totally welcome to come! I am not sure if I will be able to make it myself just yet.

Default Photos!

Great day weather-wise to fly up to Mojave for the fly-in. Warm temps, not much wind, clear skies.
I took a bunch of photos here.
It was nice to meet up with everyone. I must have run into a dozen or more people from the VAF community.
