My plane Featured in "Aeroplane" by Orval Fairbairn
Just before Sun N Fun, I met up with Geoffrey P. Jones, a UK aircraft photographer/writer, for some air-to-air shots of my 1946 Johnson Rocket 185. I put him in the back seat of a friend's Yak 52 for the shots, which turned out pretty well. His work is on Page 60 of the British magazine Aeroplane.
