Chicago Aeronuts Bulletin Vol. IV No. 5 (Feb 1940)

First issue with the new header artwork (“outdoor-fuse design”) that was the result of a contest spanning several issues (won by “Sinny”).

President: Joe Matulis

Vice-president: Ed Lidgard

Secretary: Walter Fromm

Treasurer: Pete Vacco

New council members: Frank Nekimken and Carl Goldberg

Robert Wolsey announces he’s stepping down as editor to finish school in June, to be succeeded by Joe Redman.

Contains a very short introduction to helicopters by Alex Nekimken, promising to explain “just how to use a tail” in the next issue.

Last page is scale drawings of “BIRDIE #1″, an indoor Class A glider by V.M. Garofalo.

About wil

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.
