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
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
Thermal 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.
