1952 NAA Article referencing Lufbery

This article may be of interest. I found it in a 1952 North American Aviation Skyline magazine (Korean war reference). Enjoy.

I tried a different format on the original post. See if that is sufficient.

LUF-STICK (Bob):

You're very welcome. It is so awesome that your wife is the Major's great niece. And that she enjoys the encouragement of articles and stories about his life and flying.

I am completely with you on sharing these kinds of stories with our children, grandchildren, families, etc. There is something totally solid to learn from their lives, character, struggles and sacrifices... that they (and we) must hear.

I am researching my grandfather's life right now (post on this forum here). He immigrated to the US in 1929 and became an enthusiastic American citizen in 1934. The things he went through (without complaining, even a good sense of humor) are fascinating. And he eventually, besides raising a family... of which I am a benefactor ... he made a significant contribution to the US aviation success in WWII, Korea and beyond. I have told what I've learned thus far to my older children and they are amazed, encouraged and fascinated.

It is something they need to hear as they face their own challenges in life.

If you would like a better quality copy of the article, simply PM me your email and I will be glad to send it (a pdf).

nils d:

I will try to post the picture and first page of the whole article, if you'd like.

(not G-String... though I suppose I deserve it for picking a name so close on a mostly male forum.... ha)

Email sent. Let me know if the quality is sufficient.

Also, for you and other Lufbery fans, this mural is very nice. Though you may have known about it before...

Regards,

That's an interesting article. Thanks for posting it!

A number of years ago I posted on this forum about the Lufbery circle. The consensus then was that Lufbery did not invent the maneuver. If you can find the thread, it's interesting reading.

A gentleman by the name of the Bill Jackson is working on a biography of Raoul Lufbery. I really look forward to it when it comes out.

Regards,
