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."
Understandably, the column only ran for a few months - probably because
of his extremely busy schedule.
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.
See Paul Harvey columns in the
May 1974, and
issues of R/C Modeler magazine.
