Dave after 45 years in the front end of corporate aircraft, I get nervous sitting in the back!


Hi, my name is Harold. I have no squadron affiliation, but am an aviation nut with the Vigilante being one of my favorite aircraft. I build scale aircraft models and try to be accurate in what I build. My reason for joining was to ask some technical questions about the aircraft (see general conversation) and to see all the great photos.

Cheers, Harold
