Remark Photographer
148544 / 544 (cn 12737) This is a photo that I took when I was 16 years old at the 1960 Model Airplane Championships, NAS Dallas in July 1960. This photo was taken right at engine shut down. The base would be closed from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM then they would start flight operations with all us kids having the run of the place. I call this the miracle photo for it was the only one from that trip that was properly exposed and in focus from my point and shoot camera.
