"That Zeppelin Is Back Again", was the way one New York newspaper headed a brief account of the Hindenburg's second flight arrival. The big dirigible's hops from Europe have ceased to be news, although aeronautically they are still outstanding."

Enclosed find photo of my just completed 1936 Bug from the library website [more pics 003]. Found it in the August Air Trails magazine. A bamboo bender's dream, wing tips, stab tips and all the ribs are bent from bamboo. Weighs in at a hefty 7 grams all up without rubber. Enjoy!!
