Matt flies a red RV-6 out of 52F, spent over a decade in the corporate flying world and now flies for a major airline.  Always upbeat and a great person to know.  Nine pics of Matt's -6 can be found at: https://dougreeves.smugmug.com/VAFcast/MattHRV-6-1/ 

Ladies and Germs, may I present:  Matt.

This is a five minute countdown video that was created for a conference for South America Mission.  There is no specific objective other than to show some cool footage from some of the flying taking place in Peru and use up five minutes of time!

Intro/exit music dr playing bass line from Duran Duran’s 1982 ’New Religion’ on the ’76 P-bass that lives near the keyboard.  “Needed music, didn’t have any, grabbed the bass for a sec…it's what was in my head at the moment."

The VAFcast this time around spotlights 52F's own Rob 'Mashy' Reece, RV-8 builder, former coworker and friend of about 25 years.  Rob is the airport manager of 52F and is building his RV-8 about twenty feet from where I store my RV-6.

This time around we have some new equipment that makes recording a little easier, and as time goes on we'll figure out how to use it better.

Intro music 'Guitars and Cadillacs' in honor of Rob's love of all things Texas and old school C&W.

33 minutes or so, and hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for helping keep this site online with your donations.  They get turned into things like this <g>.

...my clunky stab at a podcast.  The inaugural guest is good sport and RV-8 builder/pilot Chris Pratt.  Unpolished, full of mistakes, questionable audio levels, a host with laughable interviewing skills and no commercials. 

Thanks to Chris for being the guinea pig.  You can find him in the VAF Forums as user 'chrispratt'.  Good egg.
