  1. Is it purely coincidental that they were the same "experimental" airplane type? Was there a meetup?

    1. Yes, whether it was intentional or not...

    2. Probably were together, since N526KP served as the flight leader of a 2018 West Coast Ravens formation flight of RV's. Being in front has it's risks! Hope they both get repaired and keep going strong.
