Dec 7, 1956 Jax Florida
« on: March 03, 2021, 07:00:23 AM »
8th birthday Jax Florida 1956...Ringmaster Jr and Fox 15 was a birthday present. Dad built it and took me to Craig Field airport to fly the first time. Neither of us had flown before and someone helped me with the first flight. After that my dad built a Ringmaster Sr with Fox 35. We flew most of the time near the Southside Shopping Center on Beach Blvd. There was a club named the Southside Winders that flew there too. I still have the Fox 15 and Fox 35 engines and fly the 35 in a Brodak Super Clown.
