Default First Flights of RV-12s: Photo Album

RV-12 Fans: I have photos of many of the RV-12 1st Flights that are posted in this Photo Album, with some info about each.

(I was having trouble remembering the few flying today, so I imagined how it will be when there are 250+ !)

The first photos added to this Photo Album were given a First Flight NUMBER ("89th RV-12 to Fly", for example). That has now been changed for later postings to a First Flight DATE ("05/23/2011 First Flight", for example). I apologize for this change, but it has become too difficult to insert new photos in the middle of the Photo Album without this change. As you know, the numbers were only accurate for the first few RV-12s that flew.

Please let me know of errors/omissions; and send better photos if you have them. Van's says there are 332 RV-12s flying. (As of 24 Jul 2014)

The order of First Flights may change from time-to-time as new First Flight dates become available. Especially when dates are close together.

To send me photos of you and your RV-12, just attach the photo(s) to an email to me at: doncarljones@gmail.com

After you click on the link (Photos of 1st Flights) below, click on image to view larger images. Click on "i" below larger image to view caption.

Thats great Don. I was wondering how to keep track of them. Perhaps when known you can post the S/N's in the captions. Great work. I think this is the start of a very large file.

Thanks for your comments, Marcus! Your suggestion to add Van's S/N's is a good one. I have very few of those numbers - are they readily available somewhere?

Yes, the number of photos will increase dramatically. But the space required on the VAF site will not change. We can only hope Google has enough space on their Picassa web site where all these photos are kept.

I think it might be time for a new "sticky" post on the RV-12 section. How about: "Show us your completed RV-12!"

Just a suggestion Mr. Reeves.
