Notes from Rod Stewart (RVO)

1. These photographs are not copyrighted (we have no copyright legislation), but anyone using them for unauthorized purposes will incur my everlasting wrath.

2. Non-horizontal photographs are due to my inability to use a hand-held scanner, not the camera. Either that or the pilot's inability to fly level.
