Jim Jackman And His 50 Year-Old Top Flite Freshman
« on: December 29, 2018, 12:46:13 am »
Jim dug out his 50-plus year old Top Flite Freshman model, with an old Royal nitro engine (also over 50 years old).

It took a couple of trys and tweaks, but by the third attempt, Jim had this thing humming along and looking good. After the landing, it looked like the throttle got bumped, and she tried to get airborne again....It was great fun seeing this old model fly.... Thank you Jim for keeping these old planes flying. You always have the neatest planes out at the field......- I have learned a lot from you.

Here is the link to Jim's flights:
