Default Airborne just before the sun came up.

It was dark when he arrived at the hangar...

...but when the sun came up, it was beautiful.

The Cu-Nims kept their distance...

...as the fog rolled through the valley's below.

Bob remembered when the first kit arrived...

..."Lots of parts, probably seven years before I'll be done.".

In fact it was a bit over five...

...and he was surprised by an award (two in fact), when he was done.

But that was never Bob's intention...

...it was just about a dream pair of wings,


Van's RV-8 G-JBTR by Ed Hicks, on Flickr

...on which he could enjoy the skies,


Van's RV-8 G-JBTR by Ed Hicks, on Flickr

...come rain or shine.

It was one heck of a journey...

...and the biggest project he'd ever undertaken.

But right now, Bob knew it was worth it.

Default Great Photos!

Every couple of weeks I see a wonderful image on the VAF site, and I change my Desktop Screen shot. The second image from this set is awesome! Just love the plane coming through the sunlight. I think this shot will stay on my desktop screen for awhile. Thanks for sharing.

The quality of the photography is remarkably good. Better than that - it's excellent.

Well done!
