When Paul Buckley from Cheshire England sent me a photo documentary of his Waddelow Main Wing and Sparless Canard build, it reminded me that Marc Waddelow created those designs almost 30 years ago! (Oh how time flies!)
This installment of the newsletter is a review of the man's work. Not only do we have photos of Paul's meticulous build, we also have a look back at the genesis of the design, and information about what Marc was trying to accomplish (and/or prevent.)
This also reminds me that the support and contributions of the community are what makes The Quickie Builders Asociation great! Unfortunately, submissions have started to trickle. So I hope you'll take this as a reminder to let me know what you've been up to.
The upcoming fly-ins should give us plenty to talk about. I plan to be at Dave Dugas' Field of Dreams in August, and I hope to see you all there. Also, remember to check out the September issue of KITPLANES magazine! Editor Paul Dye gets to take a spin in Bruce Crain's beautiful (Waddelow) Tri-Q200, and we learn about Jon Swenson's eBay find roaring back to life. This is how celebrities are formed! (In certain circles!)
Remember, "Together we build better planes," newsletters, and magazine articles!
