    I think it moved out of Van Nuys around 2000 or so. Lyle still had the hangar at Van Nuys until he passed away with his Pitts and a lot of 'stuff'.

    What paint job should it wear when she is retired to the big house?
    Not the one it's wearing now, please....

    Sentimentally, the copper and white verision...4 straight Reno win's, a new qualifying record, 3 course race records, and the 3km...is the one that represents the true glory days. But I know Lyle and the family liked the gold and white with the 3 blade version best....gold being an appropriate color.

    Just did a search using the words "Rare Bear" on the AirSpaceMag.com site and here is list of articles that come up: http://www.airspacemag.com/search/?keyword=rare+bear

    Exactly what I heard as well.

    The 50th is going to be a big deal, so hold your cards close.

    Chris,

    May I ask? Where was the venue for the planned 3k attempt?

    I cannot remember if the location was/is classified or not. Probably not the best kept secret in aviation but I'm not gonna say and ruin it for anyone.
