Will do Steve...great seeing you and flying with you again! Thanks for the RV-1 fill-up, and for flying down from Nebraska to be a part of the RV-1 Escort team!

Cheers,
Bob

Default BJC-RWL-RKS-OGD (Denver to Ogden)

Another great day of flying on the Barnstorming Tour...and we're across the Rocky and Wasatch Mountains! The vistas were a bit different today than the past few days. The patchwork quilt of the Plains and the Heartland gave way to the rugged Continental Divide:


Gringo Gray as the Rocky Mountain Escort:


There's a VAF hat in there:


Fellow SWA pilot and recent RV-7 builder Bob Ashmore took over escort duties in Rawlins, WY, and was superb getting us into Ogden via Weber Canyon and through Hill AFB airspace:


Over 25 RV's awaited us on the ramp in Ogden, and the BBQ and reception was a great time...quite a hub of RV activity in Ogden!




A fun afternoon of sharing RV-1 stories and scoping out lots of nice modern RVs, a nice long hangar-flying session, and another great sunset from a local hangar ended another great day in the RV-1 Barnstorming Tour.

Tomorrow its off to Twin Falls, ID, Winnemucca, NV and Reno-Stead, NV!

Cheers,
Bob

Default A piece of History

Enjoyed the visit into BJC and seeing the arrival was Great! I think those who attended will look back one day and realize they are a special part of RV History. Don't miss an opportunity to see the RV1 fly!

Thank you Jim Gray for all you did to host this event and your crew headed up by Ricky and Carolyn on the ground did a fabulous job!
The Renegades were as always impressive!

I had the pleasure of flying with Bob and the RV-1 from Ogden UT (KOGD) to Twin Falls ID (KTWF). Flight was great, not bumpy at all.

My wife took over 500 pics, once I get them uploaded I'll share the pics.

Was awesome to see the plane, visit with Bob, and fly with the plane. A great piece of RV history that I will certainly never forget!



On the ground in Twin Falls Idaho. Bob Mills (flying RV-1) is in the middle in the red shirt.

The people to the left of him in the picture took him to Winnemucca from Twin Falls. The group to the right of him in the picture is the group from Ogden that brought him to Twin Falls.

Gary Kopecky, Jeramy Higgins (me), Boots.

Great flight, really happy to be a part of this!

More pictures from the KOGD to KTWF leg.....
