We received an email from Mr. Charles Flee, the editor for the local chapter of EAA. He requested use of the picture, which we were most pleased to grant permission. We received back the first issue. The issue is viewable in the link below.

Thanks to Model Aviation Magazine for permission to publish this photograph.
