Brown Jr completed

Well I just got the original instructions for the engine today. I actually had them before and gave them away as I never thought I would own one of these classics.
Dropped over to Chads aka Flying Farmer to pick up an engine and there they were hanging on his workshop wall
The only thing missing now is Bill Brown whom I would have loved to have met.
Speaking to Fiske Hanley on the phone the other night regarding his flight in 1937. Just prior to his flight a Cadillac pulled up and Bill Brown got out and asked if he could fine tune the Brown Jr which powered Fiske's model.
Very funny thing......I hated history in school with a passion, must have been the topics.
