Help!
Can anyone scan an article from Aeromodeller for us >

Good friend Alberto Donna
(proprietor of Hobby Club http://www.hobbyclub.com/ )
and I were wondering if anyone had a copy of the issue of Aeromodeller in which the
late Martyn Cowley wrote a report article on the Burgos-Spain 1981 F/F World
Championships in which Alberto flew with the U.S. Team, if so could the article
be scanned and posted to us? It would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Jim

There is a link to older Aeromodeller issues. I have it no longer. Maybe someone can post the link.

As far as I can see, the Aeromodellers listed only go to 1969. Jim is looking for a 1981 issue.

It is an interesting and valuable resource including issues of Model Aircraft and many of the Aeromodeller Yearbooks.

the late Martyn Cowley?


OH, MY...?

I used to compete in A-1 towline glider with/against a Martyn Cowley at Taft and Lost Hills, back in the 80's. He was kind of a glider guru and was among the first fellows to master foam building techniques. IIRC, he was also part of Paul McCready's team that won the Kremerer Prize for first sccessfull man powered flight, at Shafter Municipal Airport , Shafter, CA. This fellow was a transplanted Brit and I ALWAYS enjoyed talking with him, or reading his articles.

Is this the SAME Martyn Cowley?

Is there an on line obituary??

Thanks for the link. I'm shocked and saddened. He and I were the same age. As a modeller, I'm not anywhere close to his achievments and skill.

Heinz, you ca use "7-zip". It is free, you don't support Microsoft, and it will undo a lot of other types of compressed files as well.
