That's me, giving Alameda major a flying lesson on the Osborne Platter.

Spring 2002,

Dave Baxter from Oregon came up from last weeks VSC in Tucson to visit the Bill Osborne Field during the fun fly. He also brought his grand son who lives in the bay area for a first time lesson with the Platter model.

In 2002, on Bill's 88th "Birthday Fun Fly", the Aer-O-Nut presented Bill with a specially signed Platter. This special Platter was built by Carlos Vadillo and autographed by all of the member of the Alameda Aer-O-Nut Model Airplane Club.
