I grew up in the '60s a stone's-throw away from Glenview NAS, and went to school with bunches of kids whose fathers served there. That's the sort of project I can envision many of those fathers undertaking!

My real question is...what ever became of it? At 1/3, it would certainly have required its own 'parking place.' Big Smile

Delightful video. Thanks for sharing it.

As the 'middle' one of three brothers, I've got just two words in answer to that:

That is impressive!  I wonder if that little guy grew up to be an aviator?

Here I was thinking I was cool building orange crate scooters back in the early 70s :)

Thanks,

Fantastic!  I had to go find this on Youtube so I could see it in a larger scale.
