Default The beginning of the end.

Last year, I sold my RV-9a to a local buyer. I provided him a thumb drive image of my builder's site. http://www.vx-aviation.com/rv-9a/

Well, after more than 1600 VAF posts, many of which link to photos on my site, I will be decommissioning it this fall. This will lead to a number of dead photo links on VAF. I did contact DR at one time about this issue, but apparently there are not enough terabytes in texas to also host pictures.

I see that a lot of knowledge is already being lost this way as third party imaging sites remove pictures and I hate to be part of the problem, but I can't perpetually support or fund my site for an aircraft I don't own.

Since Van's no longer publishes the RVator, VAF is the remaining source of tribal history for our aircraft and I fear it will gradually evaporate as image sites and personal websites go away.

So if there is anything you want to capture from my site for personal use, now is the time. None of it can be used for commercial purposes without permission.

Thanks,
