Final Flight – Nelson Itterly – June 30, 2022
Members remember longtime member “Nelson” as a kind teacher, hand launch flyer and glider / builder designer. Pictured, he holds one of his own designs – an up-scaled hand launch design called “Datalus”:. The design was extremely light and used a thick slow flying wing. Members recall a time when he trimmed the plane out, put down the transmitter, went to do something and returned to the fly the plane. He passed away on June 30, 2022.
