Default RV-1 in Windsor Ontario MAY 26

Once again the weather did NOT co-op. Some of the early planes, landed, had a coffee and look see and evacuated quickly. Others still dodged the storms. Finally we all surrendered to the weather gods and hangared what we could.

Few budged iphone pics attached. Original hangar for the Elementary training of British Commonwealth pilots was used as shelter.



Of course, I had to ensure RV-1 was safely between my bird and a p51 mustang replica








Sorry they were budget pics but the weather really made a mess and getting everything in and dry out of the storms was more important.

Default Well, it certainly is an historic aircraft!

So, will the rain date kick in tomorrow? If so, I hope weather cooperates.

Thanks for watching out for the -1.
