The Brotherhood made an unscheduled early run to GMU this morning before the clouds set it. All three of us arrived at pretty much the same time. My iPad was lit up with targets. I was following Darwin's RV-3 and I passed Owen's RV-12 approaching the airport. GMU tower has radar and reported he was 1 mile off my right wing, but I could see the whites of his eyes So I landed next and Owen right after. Lunch at the Runway Cafe was good as always. Mike was kind enough to snap some photos of our planes.

I can't make it. Our grass runway is closed until further notice. It will take a long time to dry out.

Have fun and happy New Year!

Default Lunch run

The bride and I will try to make it tomorrow. If you don't mind associating with an RV-12 driver 😉.

Owen should be there with his RV-12 and I need to give Keith a call. He has a -12 as well. I'll definitely be outnumbered!

The weather was perfect and we had a great turnout today at GMU - seven people! Besides the regulars (Darwin couldn't make it), Keith from Greenville showed up in his RV-12, and Doug and wife Susan from Gainsville, GA flew in in his RV-12, making three RV-12s! Mark Cigal in his RV-8 brought his Cirrus instructor friend Chuck from Denver. Lunch was good as usual and it was a pleasure to meet the new folks. I hope they'll come join us again the next time we do this. In no particular order:

Owen's Red RV-12 and Keith's Blue RV-12:


Chuck from Denver and Mark's RV-8 (I think):


Susan and Doug in the center:


Doug and Keith inspecting Owen's shiny RV-12:

My Lancair is w-a-a-a-a-y-y-y down the line somewhere:

John & Gang!

Sorry I missed y'all! Well, I didn't really miss you, I got there just in time to see everyone depart.

Keith and I stuck around and then did a formation takeoff, Keith's first.

Maybe next time.

PS. Keith had a great time participating in his first RV event. He is firmly absorbed into the RV + cult! The Plus is there to include any other plane that joins along. That means you John!

Default Brotherhood day

Susan and I sure had a good time meeting y'all. Couldn't ask for a better day in January. Never seen so many RV aircraft at one place, there were more coming in as we were leaving. It was nice to put a face ( and a handshake) with a VAF name. We hope to join this group again in the future. Thanks for the invite John. It was also nice to see the Lanceair side of the street too.

It was a pleasure meeting you and Susan, Doug...and Keith as well. I really like the Runway Cafe at GMU. Good food...good service, and we can taxi right up. Are there any fly-in restaurants in your area of Georgia? We're always looking for someplace new to visit.
