While looking through some old issues of American Aircraft Modeler, I was quite surprised to find that none other than radio great Paul Harvey is (or was) a builder and flyer of radio controlled airplanes. There was a feature article done by Paul Harvey in one of the issues in the 1974 timeframe. Mr. Harvey then wrote a regular column titled "Paul Harvey Views."

I did a Google search to try to find information on Paul Harvey's modeling activities, but could not find anything at all. That is when I decided to go ahead and reprint this one article from the May 1974 edition of American Aircraft Modeler. I hope he won't mind.

There was an article in the February 2008 edition of Model Aviation that featured a short article on the saxophone player for the Rolling Stones, Bobby Keys, who is also an avid RC modeler.
