Peter Priest here. Thanks Dan, for all you do...
For those not in the loop, Dan is the consummate builder, flyer, and all-around good guy! (well, not sure if he is still building, what with a young daughter, wife, etc...)

Dan taught me to fly back in the 70's, and later built a number of racers for me. He was a prolific builder of quality planes. It amazed me what he could do in a small garage, with a minimal budget...

I remember his planes always flew fast, and without needing any trim! Dan was a multi-tasker at the races- I have more than one photo of him working on a plane in one hand, and a popsicle in another. Usually they were my planes...when I was ready to throw in the towel because of a burned up engine, or whatever, Dan would say, "It's not that bad...we can fix it..." And he always did. I miss those days...I miss racing...and Dan...

One of these days I'll post some of the F1 photos... Lots of great looking racers!

Peter
