My favorite RV photo that I ever took: Tom Powers' RV-8 and Jim Ruttler's RV-10 over Lake Tapps (just south of Seattle) with Mount Rainier in the background. The other photos from that flight are here including a link to full-resolution downloads.

RV-6, 6A, 7A, 9A, 10, & 12 pilot/co-owner. Aeronautical engineer, researcher, lecturer, author. Stanford, Boeing, etc.
Worked on wind-tunnel research, on design & modeling of rocket & jet engines, control systems for UAVs & spacecraft, jetliner maintenance planning, lab tests & computer modeling of innovative aero structures, future airplane design… But I have always wanted to work for a small company, on airplanes optimized for fun rather than profit, and no airplane is more fun than an RV!
