Hi Steve

No pics but a good story,in 56' i was working in the Granada Hobby Center 4 blocks from my hose while in school.

This guy bought one of those Cox 049 ready to fly planes, and wanted me to show him how to fly it, we went to the parking lot in the rear of the building and i flew it for a few minutes for him to see what to do.

Re fueled it and he took it off and he kept moving over and i told him to stay in one place, well the plane was too close to the power lines and wrapped around the wires and snapped off the control strings and flew right back over the roof top and into the main street on a Saturday afternoon.

Well it got rekited too by all the cars that ran it over, the Boss was a neat guy and gave him a new one for him and his boy to fly in the park and away from any power lines
