Default daisies

today we spent a day off-the-shop where my friend Francesco 'Franz' Dante is in the last finishing area of his RV-8.

We flew to an airfield to see a Fastback RV-8 project.

Franz took this photo with his iPhone and ... yes, spring is coming

Default What a great photo!

Luke,
Your photos and videos keep me going in the shop. Thank you for the inspiration.

I hope you can come to Oshkosh this year. I have rented a home near the field and would be honored if you would be our guest.

Sadly, no. Gotta be on top of a bucket truck tomorrow morning, knee deep in hydraulic oil, changing out the ribbon hose...the not-so-glamorous life of a truck dealer.

Default Calendar shot

Luke,
Push the plane onto the field of daisies and take the picture from the hangers out across the field to eliminate the building clutter. Us low light in the afternoon and you will have a Van's calendar shot!

Beautiful as it is however.
