jerry Behrens plan service-Travel Air


In High Flight article vol. VI page 8 1983-Chuck Spencer reviews: Travel Air 4000-Jerry Behrens.
In this article it mentions a plan of Jerry Behrens --99 inch wingspan. it has other details and then---in the last paragraph says "A good sixty size model ot the Travel air D4Dand article are obtainable from Model Builder Magazine,
these were published in November 1978. The article earlier mentions Behrens Plan Service (no more) and states; "A partial kit and a full kit are available also (in addition, to the 99" inch plans)
Help locating kits or plans or original articles would be very helpful. I know it is old, but then so are many of us!

Bill Northrop used to handle the old MB plans. Google his name and I'm sure you'll find it.

Jerry Behrens passed away 6/9/05
As for his plans the originals and most of the equipment was sold to a person with little or no interrest in rc or his plans service. [don't ask] Fortunatly his plans were popular and and can be found in some of the "for sale" forums. try posting in the "item wanted" some one should have a set they'd part with.
Good luck

I'm the grandson of Jerry Behrens and would love to have anything you have that doesn't interest you.

My brother and I were denied the right to claim any of my grandfather's belongings. The wife he took on late in life made it very difficult. We were there at many fly-ins with my grandfather and would like some things to assist in carrying on his memory.

Thank you.

Is this the same Jerry that flew giant scale at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn? I learned to fly there in the very early 80's and was always amazed and impressed by his airplanes. Now they are a dime a dozen but back then a Quadra 60 powered model was a big () deal.

It is!

This is so cool to read.

Any chance you ever saw him with a little kid back then during the summer months?

That would have been me.

My memories isn't that good. I do remember Al Winslow, Bobby Fiorenze, Frank Rega, some guy named John, Ira (a lawyer I think), Dave Rose, and a few others. Frank taught me how to fly. I was the nutty kid that rode two trains (#1 and the D) and a taxi to get to the field.
