Solar Eclipse trip to Oregon and Idaho

This trip will be in the memory banks forever. I headed up to Oregon for the EAA 292 Wings over Willamette event, then over to Garden Valley, Idaho to do some whitewater rafting and to see the Solar Eclipse. Photo album is here.

Re: OSH 17

Well, we made it to Oshkosh and had a wonderful time there and also on the way to/from. Unfortunately, we didn't manage to stick around and make the tie-down party. However, I was wearing my UCAP tee-shirt when the EAA video crew interviewed me on Wednesday about my airplane. Haven't seen anything p...

Re: "Rookery" UCAP425

Re: Wake Turbulence We flew the RV-9A into South Valley Utah (U42) on a nice calm day and got tossed 90 degrees by a vortice left by an airliner overhead headed north into Salt Lake City (KSLC).
