...With 48 of my best friends!!!!! It's 2331 here in Goodland, KS and I wanted to get a couple of links up of today's flight:

I'm sure there will be MANY more links of the 49-ship flyover at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City (Axel had a good one)...

We departed Lee's Summit for Colorado around 1800 local time (after the game) trying to get ahead of Monday's weather. We landed Goodland (GLD), KS at ~2030 (2:40 flight from KC) and are staying the night with friends Jim "Jimmyb" & Vicki Baker; we landed then called them (weather got the best of us)...Jimmyb was at the airport in 5 minutes We were supposed to land at Centennial (APA) in Colorado where we missed seeing friends Scott & Deb Mills

We are continuing home to California on Monday, and may stop at my FAVORITE airport on the way home: Telluride! Rosie & Tuppergal

PS: Keep poundin' them rivets because it's ALL worth it!

Fantastic effort and performance guys! And for a great effort, a great cause. Incidentally, what a boost for experimental aviation and specifically Vans RV flyers.

Default Another link

Here is another link showing the record setting noise and flight.

Very good public relations for experimental airplanes, well at least for RV's!

All 49 were RVs, from at least 17 states and DC.

A big THANK YOU to BeeGee, Ripper, Maverick, and Jazz and all the KC flight guys for organizing everything. Its a year-long task to pull this off with all the planning work that goes in coordinating all the logistics, sponsorship, and manufacturing the smoke brackets.

We raised over $25,000 for BCA and that is a really, really awesome thing to be a part of!
