Next Northwest control-line event: Western Canada Stunt Championships
See Where the Action Is
Spark-ignition and Old-Time Stunt expert Floyd Carter of Eugene, Ore., has recently made the first flights on this 1947 Boxcar Chief. A good looking and flying plane, as always. The engine is a Super Cyclone .65 from the 1940s. Flying Lines photo.
