Does anybody have the capability of scanning and posting the article on here for me. As some who have attended our contests in Columbus, Ohio I have three large notebooks of copied stunt articles that can take up most of an afternoon of looking through. I am in need of the article on the Miss Lauara and a host of others, but we will start with this one first. Hope somebody can help.

Hi all:

Alan Seacat was working for me nights at CSC in the 1970s while he was attending Musical Instrument Repair School in Union, New Jersey during the day. We did a lot of building and flying together in those days and Alan was starting to move up quickly in the contest rankings, but his plane was holding him back. He wanted to design and build something new and competitive.

I had this book of sketches that I made of possible new stunt designs. One of them was of a semi-scale Goodyear racer. It was a sort of adaptation of a Cassutt Racer design. Alan liked it and asked if he could use it. We set to work on plans for it immediately. We designed it around a Genesis .40 wing and tail set that I had already built and donated to the cause. The result of this was the Miss Laura (Named for his soon-to-be wife at that time. I was honored to have been asked to be the Best Man at his wedding!)

With the Miss Laura Alan graduated to the top echelon of stunt flying on the East Coast and won a few Expert meets in the process. When I went to work at Flying Models I was searcing for CL Stunt designs to publish. We decided to publish the Miss Laura. Shortly after that he got married, got a job, started a family and quit flying! The last I heard he and his wife were into boating and water skiing. Alan was a great guy and a wonderful, hard working employee. I sure hope he comes back to flying someday...

I always told the guys that the education comes first, not thinking of girls throwing a wrench in the works.  Some I see once in a great while.  Have fun,  DOC Holliday

Hummm. Believe I said this to Bob awhile back. one of the few sports that has a world championship with no monetery prizes,ergo no money, no women. Gotta get a fast car or motorcycle, and win something Airplanes especially models don't count.

I would be happy with getting flag girls like Formula one has at the starting grid, have them stand at the plane in the pits to mark your position in flying order,, yeah thats it, dont even worry about the money,,  Hoff

Mark...I'd rather have those umbrella girls in the spandex micro-shorts that they have in Moto GP races. Yes, I'd rather have them hold an umbrella over you, to keep you distracted from "Sienna the Stunt Dawg", while I load her into my truck.  Oh, wait...she wanted to gnaw my ankles off last we met...I'll take the umbrella girl.
You keep Sienna over on your side of the circle.  Layingdown Steve

We're always hearing about Social Security running out of money. How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?

Which was more shocking to you? That there were 800,000 government non-essential employees being told to stay home because there was no money to pay them? Or that there were 800,000 non-essential government employees?
