The Canadian legs of the RV-1 Tribute Tour are in the history books and the little plane that could is barnstorming the mid-west now.
In it’s wake are a lot of memories, smiles and photos. Below are just a few. But before that, here are a few comments that were posted along the way …
Ross and Don are on their way from Sussex, NB to Bromont, QC, via a fuel stop in Rivière-du-Loup. I’ll take over the aircraft in Bromont, and take it to Smiths Falls for the night. – Kevin Horton
My first flight in the RV1 from Smiths Falls to Peterborough went fine but I was a tad apprehensive about landing the plane the first time! There was a bit of a crosswind on landing and the plane is lighter then my rocket and it took a while to settle on to the runway. The second flight along the North shore of Lake Ontario with the City of Toronto in the background was amazing. I was able to wave at the people that were doing the “sky walk” on an open platform at 1000agl. They got their monies worth with a personal fly by! The landing at my home grass strip was uneventful. This is a neat little airplane, light and fun to fly. – Tom Martin
Today my journey with the RV1 ended. This was a remarkable experience, both flying the aircraft and interacting with other pilots. I had care of the aircraft for seven days and had four flights. – Tom Martin
