j. We had Greg B. tell of the two man, recon small planes (L-2, L-3, L-4, & L-5). At an air show, he race out in his jeep to help tow a damaged L-5 back to safety (It looked like it was planned and the crowd was pleased. I remember a story of a WWII L-3 being attacked by a German FW 190 over water. The very slow plane was able stay out reach by flying at wave top level, out turning his attacker, and circling an island with a tall hill on it. The FW was too fast and could not line up his guns to shoot down the American plane. Finally the German had to give up and return to his base.

3. You do not need to wait for a notice for you to display of your vehicle. There several small car shows all over that would be very happy to have you in their show. Greg B. has also e-mailed members of desired locations. Just be clean & bring good feelings of our club (no misbehavior) to the public.
