Stits-based RV-1 under restoration

Bear Creek Skunk Works builder Michael Crowder sent us the news this week that a group called the "RV-1 Friends" has acquired Van's original RV-1, which as you all know is based on the Stits SA-3A Playboy. They plan to restore the aircraft, bring it to AirVenture 2012, fly it around the country and eventually donate it to the EAA's museum. You can see images from their initial work session below and at this link. I have contacted the directors of the group and invited them to participate in our Stits reunion next year.
