Thanks Everyone that participated in the fifty-first USA tour, flying WW I aircrafts over the skies of Rhode Island and Massachussetts.


The flight was completed under VFR rules. But this was not easy.
As previous USA tour events planned for VFR always had a beacon rescue alternative, the weather was cooperative. But this time, due to the equipment available in most crafts (excepts KB7 hyper advance WWI fighter)... we only had bearings, compass and a lot of dead reckoning.

More dead than alive, surely, because the weather came really uncooperative, with overcast skies with ceilings as low as 300 feet for long patches of the path. The Vineyard sound was particularly interesting, where we would feel the marine breeze and sea the seals (not the military kind) resting on the seashores of this NorthEastern Atlantic.

We made it thou, coming low and slow, and dealing with rather low temperatures, but awesome company, and much more incredible views of the sealine.

Massachussetts Bay was an imponent sight for the end of a really memorable tour.

I'll announce the Tour 52nd soon.

Looking forward to it,
Best,
IH-COL
