Some of you might remember the name Steve Barnard from back in the early days of the RV 6a. He had a business called BAC--------Barnard Aircraft Co., and did prefab work on the wing kit----Vans had them as an option for a while, just like the Plogestien spars. Steve also developed the Holey Cowl, now sold by James Aircraft.

Anyway, Steve is a buddy who lives just up the street from us. His son Ethan just refinished/upgraded the signage at the entrance of the airpark, Eagle Scout project.

Thought some of you might recognize a couple of the planes belonging to airpark residents, planes Ethan used as the subjects for the new signs.
