Thanks everyone! I guess I should have more total immersion days at work so that things get taken care of in my absence....

Looks like Roy has the leg under control, and I can start thinking about the future stuff!

Smoky, you make a good point that some folks might not understand. FFI cards are only required (by the FAA) for formation in waivered airspace, and we understand that - I fly lots of two-ship formation for test and photo purposes, but don't hold an FFI card. but if we WERE planning on close formation with he RV-1, using the FFI card as a requirement is a quick way to understand an individual's experience level - just an easy credential check. that's the only reason I referred to it.

Yet it just so happens that the first leg will be flown by two members of "Falcon Flight". Roy flying the -1 and myself as support... A complete accident, I promise, really .

Don't get set on the DATE just yet. The LR weather is for chance of rain from 3/7 to 3/13 at Hicks.
I am optimistic because my forcast is as good as there's.

Default Scott Sick?

I'm jealous and trying to figure out how to make an inconvenient <or is that convenient> illness hit about the 8th.

Default M79?

I hope you guys make the flight on the weekend, as you're passing right over my neck of the woods. (Ruston and Monroe, LA).

Maybe I can join up for a photo op. ?

Jarhead,
Do you know someone at M79?
If not, might I suggest you press on to KTVR. 39 more miles.
Good fuel price and very nice facilities.

Ahhhh, these threads are going to be fun. They should be kept individual for each leg. I'm sure we're all really looking forward to this. I know I am. This support crew is going to be prepared with a full fuel stop qualified lunch (one hand on the pump, the other on a sandwich), maybe even a cookie involved for the PIC.

Of course Scott, you realize that one of the duties of the escort is to prevent impromptu join-ups on the RV-1.....maybe I should have specified armaments!

Looks like a great team for the first leg. Twelve day out forecasts? Tea leaves....

Uh, yeah. I may be "new", but have become quite skilled at fending off the bogies. And of course, was once advised by some old fogie, to never cancel a flight op due to weather before you get to the airport. I'll keep Jarhead in check .

Default impromptu?

Impromptu join-up? The planned flight is over a week from now.
Plenty of time to brief

I just love formation flying and look for any opportunity to join up!

I think a nice photo of the RV-1 with escort flying over the Mississippi would be cool.
