Here's the first of several batches of photos from the Texas Rotocraft Club's fly-in at Anahuac, Texas -- lots of flying, fun, and friendly folks.

Photo 1: Mike Grosshans refuels the AR-1 that belongs to him and Danny Whitten.That's Danny in the brown shirt, and in the back is Bobby Munroe.

Photo 2: Danny Whitten returning from one of the several rides he provided in an AR-1.

Hi, Kevin

Here are a few more photos of the single-place aircraft.

The majority of the gyroplanes there at the fly-in were two-place and among the single-place gyroplanes, only a few of them were actually flown.
