Pierre is right (although a quick re-read of Paul's log book review indicates the RV-1 as we see it today is of 1965 vintage !). I would love to hear what Vans thinks of the "first RV" not that 46+ years have passed. I'm so thankful he has been a part of aviation !

An a big thanks to the Friends of the RV-1 !

Perhaps one of us will get the Luck chance to ask Vans personally during the EAA webinar on the 28th !

GREAT job, team! Can't wait to see it at Oshkosh. If it is passing near Indiana, a tank of gas on me!

You just need to plan to fly up north a bit on Memorial Day, Bob, and you can make good on that promise.

Still in the early stages of planning, but a stop in or near Elkhart is in the works on the 2012 Barnstorming Tour for the RV-1. As the time grows nearer, I'm sure posts will be made cementing the itinerary.

Congrats to everyone who participated in resurrecting the RV-1! I showed my wife the video of the first flight and she said, "THAT'S an RV?" Girls.
