I’ve got my doubts as they are all a committed bunch of RC pilots and no doubt Gregg jumped the queue for a solo display of his Skyraider before the Stow Maries Show really got going !Gregg’s model was built from the Nick Ziroli plan and is powered by a EME 60cc engine.
The Douglas A-1 Skyraider (formerly AD Skyraider) is an American single-seat attack aircraft that saw service between the late 1940s and early 1980s. The Skyraider had a remarkably long and successful career; it became a piston-powered, propeller-driven anachronism in the jet age, and was nicknamed “Spad”, after the French World War I fighter.
It was operated by the United States Navy (USN), the United States Marine Corps (USMC), and the United States Air Force (USAF), and also saw service with the British Royal Navy, the French Air Force, the Republic of Vietnam Air Force (RVNAF), and others. It remained in U.S. service until the early 1970s./Essential RC
