Gale Wagner's Amazing Flying School Bus











Gale builds big. He pleases himself when it comes to design, and he claims (as many times as you'll care to listen,) that he "doesn't know what he's doing."

For someone who doesn't know what he's doing, Gale sure gets great flights. And when you see his giant creations pulled skywards by a huge silver prop spinning slowly with the power of a few strands of rubber you'd be amazed too.

Actually, the braided motor is pretty big. It looks like a mooring rope for the QE2. It's a good thing Gale is proficient with the welding torch, because if his stooge came free of mother earth when reaching 500 winds, the model and steel stooge would be projected directly towards the winder at the speed of sound. And you thought playing with paper airplanes was sissy?

Gale is planning something much bigger for 2008.

That's a big one.

Tom, your commentary is priceless. I don't think you need any encouragement, but I gotta say, you're cracking me up. You have a way with words.
