Default Strange thing happened...Whistling Bomber Returns!

Ok.....so I am at the airport in Northern VA going to check out a couple things. Well I look in my rear view mirror and a very suspicious looking aircraft begins to tail me....following me where ever I drove on the airport ramp.

[IMG][/IMG]

I took a sharp turn on a taxiway in order to lose this very suspicious aircraft .....he could not make the turn and I lost him for a moment(he is use to taxiing on metric taxiways)

[IMG][/IMG]

I tried to get away.....but he was very hungry found me again....so what can I do......I invite him to the house

[IMG][/IMG]

Put his airplane in a hanger and brought him home to feed him.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

I was going to take a photo of the food but he was very hungry and my camera shutter speed was not fast enough to take photo before food vanished in a flash!

So with a belly full of food....he was escorted back to the runway and headed back to NJ.....very windy day. He had to hurry back to NJ to get there before dark(his airplane not equiped with a nite light!)

First of all, Bob thanks for a day of fun and great reception! I enjoyed the visit very much. Your RV8 is in more advanced stage of construction then the other but you will face a stiff competition...


Bob is a very busy hardworking guy but I caught him eventually. When temps are freezing and winds howling, Bob was stuck in his shop. He has a trove of info from his recent training at Lycoming Engine School and I came to extract that knowledge. In a couple of months I will be interpreting for a foreign visitor at the same School and I need to know what and how they teach. Having an RV it's an easy trip from NJ to VA.


... I turned on all heating equipment I had. A gas heater Tom lent me years ago and two hair dryers some ladies left. Took good 15 minutes to get oil to 60F from 17F.






Three sixty to honor "Good Bravo Kilo"










QuickCheck if there is still sand on a VA coast. There was.







iGate factory looking south from 9500'. My tracker froze and stopped sending beacons. That's why I penetrated 53VG air defenses so easily.








It's a long road to Bob.








Finally I got to Warrenton KHWY. Spotted suspicious plates







and followed them. Local folks were curious who flys in weather like this?







I love this picture. There are two objects and one subject and all of them trimmed in red.







Bob's den.

A lot of great tips and suggestions I learned from Bob's RV8 project. We chatted, joked and had a good time. Bob and his boss Kathryn are great cooks!

Bob the Steikmeister.






Good boss is the secret to juicy steak.








Look at this. There is a special sauce Bob invented. A1 condiment is not even close.






RV talk never ends but daylight does. Here Bob drives me again in his truck blindfolded through the countryside...





I am taking picture of Bob taking picture of me.







Around Red Circle of Washington DC I go to the north. It's friggin siberia upstairs again. I need a second heat muff.







Thanks Bob for a cup of hot coffee it really helped.








Mid Atlantic RV Flyin airport. Home of Dragon Flight formation team too.






Not a single GA airplane in the air. Occasional airliner complains about something moderate and asks for higher...







I made if safely Bob.

Hey Bob, STEAK?? You told me to stop by for a tuna fish sandwich anytime. What the heck?

Looks like a fun time was had by all. Hi to Kath for us.

ps I'm in Augusta, GA for Thanksgiving where I will try my first deep fried turkey. A mere 2 hours yesterday in my -6. My wife hardly had any time to complain about the cold.

Default Great write up...

I always like to live vicariously thru Vlad and all his traveling exploits...Vlad always has such good write ups! And even better when the write up contains other great VAF people like Skyking Bob and "the boss" Kathryn! Wish I could have been there - Thanks for the write up Bob and Vlad - I always like the signature "food" shot and you went above and beyond with the "Food prep" picture this time! Glad you got home safe and were able to set a new non-speed record Vlad!

So I was doing a little Christmas shopping this afternoon and ran across this and couldn't believe my eyes. It sure seemed to fit with the theme of this thread.
