Rusty's videos gave me a idea, here's a picture (thanks to 21st century technology: google maps, screen print on paint) of my first flying circles in North Platte, NE...good o'l chuch parking lots!

The first photo is where at 12 and got my PT-19 for my birthday, its was first RTF plane I could actually start and fly and I flew the crap out of it that summer.

Second photo is another church parking lot (we had moved to different neighborhood) this is where I flew my Rivets, smacked in my Miss America, several DIY balsa designs and my first 'big' ship a Fox .15 powered Ringmaster Jr.Early flying fields First_11

...and since I'm on a roll, here's Brownell Grade School, Lincoln, NE where the summer of '69 going into 5th grade I got a Testors SNJ off the ground and into a figure 9, SPLAT....'cause I took out the lead nose weight!
