volunteer work building a flying copy of the spirit of St Louis

back in the 70's while living in San Diego , I did volunteer work building a flying copy of the spirit of St Louis. this was a great ,learning experience
sadly there are too few skilled builder's left , so it was great to work
with these men. Claude Ryan the original builder helped also.
one of the hilights was a visit from Jimmy Dolittle - and a chance
to talk with him.
