Lost my father today. He started me in this hobby when I was a mere 10 years old. I wish his health later in life would have allowed us to enjoy the hobby in the past few years. I will simply honor his memory by enjoying it now. My daughter has vowed to enjoy it with me. She loves the history of the World War II era and my love of those aircraft will continue to bind us.

Went to the WRAM show today. Had a nice discussion with Wendell regarding my Dively kit of his Skybolt plans. Also bought a set of his plans for the 29% GEE BEE Z. A wonderful family owned and involved business. His whole family was there with him. RC modeling at it's finest!

Took my daughter to see Unbroken yesterday. At the end of the movie she turned to me and said "I don't want to ever buy a Japanese car". She was finally able to understand my feelings without any intervention on my part. She was one of a very few young adults in the theatre. I guess we really don't teach reality anymore in schools.....we merely teach what is politically correct. It is only through life experience that we really learn ANYTHING.

Giving thanks to those who lost their lives and those who served that fateful day. May the younger generations NEVER forget your sacrifice!

Another great time at the WWII Weekend! I've taken so many pictures there over the years it's hard to sift through them! There is no other event like this on the East coast! A great opportunity to take pics for scale documentation! The P61 has come a long way in all the years I have been attending the airshow. I remember when it was merely a fuselage crutch. At some point I hope I can contribute to it's construction...in a hands-on way....Continue Reading

Grew up flying with some legends.... Fran McElwe, Leon and Don Shulman, Ron Palmer (RIP) (made the robot Criton for Buck Rogers). It was a good time to be young! We flew at a paved parking lot next to Camp Kilmer, Edison, NJ. Like all good things, some could not fly over the field and insisted on flying over the Piscataway Votech. One flyer decided to crash into the Votech and after that, it was only a matter of time before a good thing came to an end!
