Default RV-8 25th Anniversary this year at OSH

The RV-8 turns 25 years old this year, and Van’s and EAA plan to work with members of the community to celebrate the anniversary at AirVenture in Oshkosh! Planning to fly your RV-8 to OSH this year? Sign up at this link to join in the celebration: https://www.eaa.org/airventure/featu...versaries/RV-8

We will announce events and plans here as they solidify. If anyone is interested in helping EAA and Van's coordinate the events and activities, please contact me (email to media@vansaircraft.com) and let me know! It's community members that make events like this work!

This year will be the first one in many that we have had an RV-8 in our Van’s booth. John Stahr plans to be at our booth his well-known and amazingly painted RV-8.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!

I better start building faster...

Seriously, I really wish mine would be done in time for this year, but realistically, end of the year is about the best I can hope for. Probably won't make OSH this year either, what with project-completion purchases.

Me too!

Yesterday evening I was standing over my -8 in the shop pondering some details. My version of "progress".

My situation is very similar. Hoping my -8 will fly this year, and thought I would skip OSH to further that goal. But my wife said I should go; I'll need the vacation and she knew I'd end up regretting it. When your wife says "go to OSH", you go to OSH and count your many blessings. Glad I'll be there for the festivities!
(As an interesting aside, I'm writing this on the day of our 39th anniversary... another testimony to our wisdom and dedication. Love you, Amy...)

I think this decided which of our airplanes get to go to Oshkosh this year...or at least one of them!
