Default RV-8 Oshkosh Formation

A view from 7th Heaven on the SE side of the field. Amazing job guys! It looked incredible and the routine was so smooth.

Excellent composition and choreography by my former teammates. You guys hit it out of the park and should have been featured everyday. The solo acro routines get a bit redundant and the Renegades provided much needed relief.

Since I was away from the flight line I had no idea who they were. . But I agree completely, the performance was awesome. I heard strangers at 7th say “look at their precision!”

It was a great show and should have been every day.

Default Just a light hearted poke at the RV8 fans.

Here is something to amaze everyone...while pushing his plane out of the back door or the hangar ( for a reason I wont go into ) number two had the back half of his right wheel pant broken off going over the door track. With only a few minutes remaining before our engine start time the wheel pant was removed and he flew a flawless formation aerobatic routine with one pant on and one off.. now thats skill!
