New Addition: 1978 Tournament of Champions artifacts

Yesterday, Denis and Pat Donohue paid a visit to the museum to deliver Denis’ 1978 Tournament of Champions entry, an RC scale version of Henry Haigh’s Super Star.  This model won the George C. Johnson Award for the best scale model entered into the 1978 ToC.  Along with the model, Denis donated the jacket and personal calculator given to participants in the 1978 contest, letters to contestants, and notes about the flight pattern.  He also donated the jumpsuit that was given to contestants in the 1977 Tournament of Champions.

Thanks, Denis and Pat, for helping grow the museum’s collection.
