SAM 27 Antique Flyer


Ding and his Fokker D.VII in this month's Antique Flyer

Many of us in Marin Aero Club also belong to SAM 27 (our local chapter of the Society of Antique Modelers) and as members we receive SAM 27's fine newsletter, Antique Flyer, six times a year.

Jimmy Walker is the new editor of Antique Flyer. He produced the two most recent issues, and is clearly putting a lot into it. The newsletter is looking better than ever. If you want to see for yourself, the January/February 2009 issue of Antique Flyer is available to view or download here.

Another great antique flyer from the SAM guys.

I agree wholeheartedly with Mike Clancy, regarding the appreciation and satisfaction that comes from building your own planes.

We must strive to preserve the techniques and skills required to build & trim a flying model.
Otherwise, these methods will be forgotten, and the hobby will be populated only by flyers instead of model builders.

Another contributer to this months antique flyer, Remo Galeazzi, tells a very moving story of bygone days: "The Flight".
An excellent narrative that I found quite thought provoking...nice job, Remo.
