This is one of Van's two demonstrator RV-9 aircraft.  It has a sliding canopy, which is what I intend to build.  The canopy can be opened when taxiing on the ground.  The roll bar is in front of the seats.

Here is a 35mm scanned picture I took at Oshkosh 2002 of a brand new RV-9A built and flown by William Duffy from Cincinnati.  He built the "tip-up" canopy version, which has a panoramic view forward with the roll bar behind the seats.
