Thumbs up Unbelievable Photo!

Dean Wingard has taken some great pictures of Team RV in action, but this one, taken at the Boshears Skyfest in Augusta, GA this past weekend beats them all. Thanks, Dean. You're the best!




Alpha flight (Kahuna, Widget, Smokey and Bones) is in fingertip formation, just pulling up for the fingertip to diamond barrel roll while Bravo flight (Stripes, Leggs, Dubes and Greese) in diamond formation are setting up for a pitch up. The first two aircraft in Charlie flight (Speedy and CB) are taking up the rear.

There are just two more performances in the 2011 Team RV schedule:
Greenwood Lakes (4N1), NJ, 22-23 October
Lumberton (KLBT), NC, 29 October

Hope to see more VAF pilots before we take our Winter break.

Default Awesome photo!

That is awesome! Looks like Papa Juliet at the bottom - must be if the pilot is "CB"!

I posted this photo to my Facebook page (credited). One of my sisters said "These are real airplanes?????"

I told her they are what I built and fly.

She put another message up "Whoa!"

That is indeed "PapaJuliette". There is another one of these photos where the Red/White of "PJ" and the Yellow of Greese's RV8 just go POW(!!) against the BLUE sky.

Also, the angles on photos like this sometimes causes some interesting "views". The spacing and formation is probably not what you think it is.

<There is plenty of space for safety between Alpha and Bravo/Charlie. >

But to make it look exciting for the crowd is what we work on.

And, there are two more ships (just out of the frame as B2 and B3 are shifted back one ship for this pass) ... Subob and RB.

aka "CB"

Thumbs up Great Photo

I'd love to have a large print on my office wall. Any chance of getting the original file or perhaps paying for a print of same?

Just an outstanding shot!

Go to Dean Wingard's facebook page and send him a message. I'm sure he will be happy to help you out.
