Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some
form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle
my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which
all began in Mayo, MD

Electric R/C B-17 Video
While flying my Taylorcraft at the Fairview Business
Park in Fairview, Pennsylvania, a group of guys drove up a few hundred feet away
and unloaded an electric B-17 R/C model. It turned out to be some members of the
G R/C Club that meets here in Erie, PA. The club president, Cliff Bendig, walked
over and introduced himself, and said that club treasurer Gary Niemi was the owner
and pilot of the B-17. I drove over to where they were just in time to get this
video of the landing. Very cool!
