Happy Birthday to the USMC 


In advance of Finishing School #2, I have two friends on helping, Steve Glover (Corvair/KR-California) and Terry Hand, (Corvair/Pietenpol – Georgia ). Both of them are Marines. To celebrate the Birthday of the Corps, a little shooting was in order, and conveniently I have a pistol range in my back yard.



Pictured above, 10/22, 1911 in .45 ACP, .410/.45LC handgun and a .357. Terry drove down from Atlanta, a brought two of the tools pictured above from his late Father’s inventory.  Read his fathers story here: Terry Hand’s story “Our Own Honor Flight”



Steve Glover, left and Terry Hand Right. Steve was the host of Corvair College #37 in Chino, and Sells the plans and parts for the KR series of aircraft, and Elison throttle body carbs through his website. NVAero.com. Terry runs and moderates out “Pietvair” private on line discussion group, and is a senior Delta international pilot flying 757s and 767s. Notice, both guys are lefties, and good shots. ( I put most of the fliers on the paper. )



About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.

    What range? I like to draw a ‘bad boy’ on cardboard and see how well I do drawing and delivering a double tap – usually around 10 yards, more lifelike. Or should I say ‘deadlike’. {;^)
    Just a simple Ruger 9mm or even the sneaky Ruger mini .380.
