Photo #3, on the left, looks like a Veco Warrior - a real one, not the later Dumas re-design.

Thanks for the pics.  You were a handsome dude back then.

Just thought I had better clarify this before I get nailed to the wall.   We both know we get better looking with age.   Hope to see you again.

Actually this was a Veco Squaw with a fox 35 for power and my Sportwing with an Ohlson 33 on glow with a Champion plug. It gave me great millage on a small tank and it really flew good

I fly with Leo three times a week and I can attest that he still has those very jeans.  They are preserved with Testers and CA.

As you see in these pictures the wind was always blowing in Montana. If you couldn't fly in the wind you stayed home. It is like bike riding in Oregon. If you don't like to ride in the rain you don't ride! HB~> HB~> HB~> #^ #^ #^ #^ #^
