Generations of Flight showcases you, the model aircraft enthusiast, and your love for the hobby. To celebrate model aviation, we are asking everyone to share their favorite flying experiences. Maybe it’s a photo and story of your first flight, your most recent visit to an airfield, or a memory that inspired you – we want to hear from you!
My brother David and I have been flying model aircraft since we were old enough to walk. The black and white photo (left) shows us in 1957 (age 5 & 3), holding our Dad’s speed plane. The color photo (right) shows us last year after more than 50 years of flying. Our dad (Harley) gave us the love of flying, and flying model aircraft has been a family event ever since.
