 Thursday Old Farts Fun Fly...

The lineup for flyers at a typical TOFFF session in 2000.

 Trevor Shiraishi tunes up his Cox motor on his brand new Plecan Simplex 1/2A Texaco machine while fellow SAM 27 youth member Sean Crowley looks on. 

Sean and Tevor are both graduates of the SAM 27 Youth Program run by Rocco Ferrario--and fine modelers in their own right.

Jerry Long and his Jimmie Allen Skokie.










Trevor and his Simplex  tune up

Jerry Long winding his other Jimmie Allen model a "Jimmie Allen Special".

Don Bekins and Pacer 'C'

Jeez, what a great shot! 


Andrew Tickle launching his "Korda DT", his first SOS model 

(Spirit of SAM)


Another good one - George Benson and Jerry Long with Lakeview Road 'Flight Hazard' in background.  Don't worry. The telephoto lens makes the towers appear closer than they are!




Trevor let'er Fly! Off into the "wild Blue Yonder" goes his Simplex, a fine flyer.
