RRSW at Westover 2017

Back in June, 10 Swifts from the RRSW, most from LA and TX, made the trip west to the Swift West Coast Fly in at Westover Field, California. Of course getting there was a big part of the adventure but many also fullfilled a dream of flying their Swifts over the Golden Gate bridge. Todd Bengston was part of the group and as always, Todd captured some wonderful photos of the event. Click here for more.
