    I just came back from the RSA meeting in France, the RSA being the french federation for E-AB and vintage airplanes. This year it also hosted the European Federation of Light Experimental and Vintage Aircraft meeting (EFLEVA days). There was close to 400 planes and I thought I'd share some pictures of a few of them:

    A scratch-build Orion:

    Croses Criquet:

    A beautiful Stearman:

    This two-seater UFO landed saturday morning:

    And some weird flying contraption, half-vintage half-experimental:

    Did Emile build that one himself? Nice pictures too!

    Great photos, Arfang! did you see any Fournier RF-3 or RF-4 there?

    I briefly spoke to the pilot but I didn't ask him who built the plane unfortunately. I couldn't find any more information on internet either.

    Cool, Arfang! Those Fournier motorgliders are a perfect example of how efficient a wood airframe can be, from the aerodynamic and structural standpoints.

    That "UFO" is the prototype Verhees Delta 2 .... available in plan form. Apparently the plans include CNC cut-files for most of the sheet aluminum parts.
    I want one!
