There are 3 guys I distintly remember first was Goldie , or Harold Goldclank standing in the middle, his pilot next to Bob is Alan, can't remember his last name, and I think the Cigerette guy with the Hat is Doc. These guys were a hoot. Goldie always did comentary fro both pylon heats and Pattern flights where he made up manuvers like Figure 7, 9 and W. 2 of these would wind up being crashes and the W was an inverted figure M. all with the color of a bit of Jack. I think I flew at that years NATS in my first Pylon race. Lou Penrod called for me. I worked at World engines at the time. WOW.
What a time.
Here's some more from the Glenview nats. Pattern only for me sorry about that Pylon guys.
Harold Goldclank!!!! I told Charlee it was Harold Goldstein. So kudos for remembering that T. He used to call his Figure M "For Mother!!!!"
He would get a huge audience behind him when he flew pattern all with his gruff Brooklyn accent. Classic stuff.
BTW the houses were a lot closer in that picture than I remembering them being.
It was cool having the Nats a few times in my backyard. Great to think back on that time in my life.
Thanks Charlee, Mike Mueller
PS see who can identify these guys
