My home was in close proximity to Los Alamitos Station in 1967. My family wrote me about the event but I was on the other side of the world in a direct support rotor wing company. I was happy to return home a little worse for wear but alive. 1968 is when I fell in love with rc. Shortly I bought my Orbit tx & rx. I was on my way to fulfilling years of speedi e bult,comet dreams of controlling my little creations in the sky sans strings or burning cotton cord. How time flies.
