New updates, and more to come!
I’ve recently posted two magazine articles about the Chicago Aeronuts. The first was written by Ed Lidgard and published in “Air Trails” in 1946. The second was written by Art Christensen and published in “American Modeler” in 1959. Art passed away earlier this month, and I was contacted by his nephew, Gene Christensen, a current Aeronut. Gene sent the two photographs below. He would like help identifying the people in them.

I hope this new blog format, once I get used to it, will make updates easier for me, and allow people interested in the site to better interact.
I am a grandson of Chicago Aeronut Otto Curth. I lived in Rockford when I was young, but moved to Southern California in 1985. It didn't quite kill the opportunity to model with my grandfather, but it certainly hampered it. Since I wasn't (and probably won't ever be) able to join the club, I decided to at least set up this site to help preserve and share the history for anyone who may have an interest.

Will, I am the son of Rudy Schuh a fellow Aeronut and good friend to Otto, I remember Otto well as my dad and I spent many a time at his house visiting, I myself modeled and was an Areonut when I was a kid, then I met women and my modeling days since have passed but I just wanted to say that your grandfather was a wonderful man
