Thumbs up RV-1 Photos - Sun-n-Fun

Here's my RV-1 photos from Sun-n-Fun
I'll post Spruce Creek photos early next week


When you view the photos you'll have no doubt that Van has re-connected with his RV-1. Van spent 90% of his time at the RV-1 tent, and most of that time was spent working on his bird... tape measure in hand, on his back, on his knees, in the cockpit, and turning wrenches. I anticipated taking photos of visitors, but as it turned out the photos are more a documentary of Van re-connecting. Enjoy!

Ernie, what a great set of photos and a real delight to look through.

Reminded me to make a donation to the RV-1 fund...hope it might do the same for a few others

Hey Boomer,
Remember working on those brake lines?
