So did RV move from Forest Grove, OR to Forest Grove, MI? Odd that they have the same name. Or maybe a typo?

Neat history lesson!

Default The RV-1 "On to OSH Tour"

Well things are getting pretty busy and I should have probably have had this task done a month ago, but it seems something always got in the way...

I'm doing the flight plan for the RV-1 and the two RV-12 escort ships tour from Aurora to OSH. We'd like to make a few stops along the way to show off the airplanes and perhap trade hanger lies over a hamburger. Of course all of this is weather dependant...

Our first planned event stop is at Townsend MT, to meet up with EAA Chapter 344. Brian Carroll (hydroguy2) is coordinating that stop and we've already been in contact.

So if you are along a rough line from Oregon to Wisconsin and are interested in seeing a piece of this flying historical artifact, contact me via PM and we will see what we can work out.

See you at OSH!

Looking forward to it....actually I have 30-40 people on my notification list that are interested.

What day are you heading this direction?

Also Brent Travis said he could make a lunch stop in KCOE if that's along your path? Brent email: n999bt(at)gmail.com

Good match up with the speed range, also, kinda neat to have the first and latest of the designs flying together.

Good luck, wish I was going to be there with you guys.

Curious on the dates too. We hope to camp for one night at 8U8 on Thursday the 19th.

I don't really know much about Towsend, but since Brian talks it up a lot, I thought it would be as good a spot as any.

Especially now if RV UNO is going to swing by!

All,

Here is what the flight itinerary is looking like. The flight will consist of the RV-1, Teen Flight RV-12 (flown by teen builder Aric Kraus and Scott McDaniels), and the Red Factory RV-12 (flown by Van's guy Sterling Langrell)

Depart Thursday 7/19:
UAO -> LWS (287 sm - Fuel)
LWS -> 8U8 (263 sm - Fuel, BBQ w/EAA344-Brian Carrol)
8U8 -> BIL (145 sm - Overnight/Fuel)

Friday 7/20
BIL -> HEI (283 sm - Fuel)
HEI -> LVN (355 sm - Fuel/Overnight)

Saturday 7/21
LVN -> OSH (234 sm - OSH Arrival)

We'd like to try to hook up with Stein or an EAA Chapter in the Minneapolis area at Airlake MN (LVN) and maybe do something of a BBQ event there. Stein are you game? Post or PM me if you are... The factory RV-10 with Gus and Daryl may also be in position to make this stop too...

Of course all of this is weather dependent and maybe get modified at a moments notice. I'll keep posting updates on this thread...

The ONE heads up to Arlington, WA this afternoon for that show...

LVN it is...we'll make it a date and see if we can't stir up a bit of interest here!

Cheers,

Just sent out a mass email for all Montana RV's and homebuilders to come to 8U8 on the 19th. If the weather holds we should have a good turnout.

email me if you're headed this direction. bkcarroll@mt.net


Jeff, looks like you'll be right on time. I'll be pointing Aurora to OSH friday morning, too. So will my Bonanza neighbor
