On the 9th of September we loaded the Bearhawk up and headed to the Badlands fly-in in Hot Springs SD. This is the second time we went. We had a lot of fun last year and this year wasn't any different.
I got a couple of pictures of Mt. Rushmore on the way down.
When we arrived, there were already quite a few airplanes on the ramp.
Shortly afterwards, several more showed up and put on a bit of a show for us.
3 RV-10's and an RV-7A.
Russ Dent's RV-9A.
RV-7A (I think)
A bunch of RVs. Jay Pratt's RV-8 (Borrowed Horse) on the far right.
Bruce Bluhm and Dean Sombke's nice RV-10.
We also went to a mammoth dig site. It was once a sinkhole that mammoths fell into and couldn't get out. Since they say a picture is worth a thousand words...
All and all, We had a great time looking at airplanes and talking to the builders.
