We have a long College tradition of having your photo taken with your running engine. Often, after two or thee intense days of building, learning and fun, builders posture reflected exhaustion rather than the internal elation they were feeling. To make a better picture, I told each of them “Picture yourself standing the same way as the pirate in the Captain Morgan rum ads.” It worked very well, and ever since we have had much more jaunty pictures of first engine runs. Use the comments section to vote for your favorite “Captain Morgan”.
Lou Cassella, Pietenpol engine.
Joe Pringle, Zenith engine.
Bill “Snow suit” Beauvais, Pietenpol engine.
Terry Lambert, Zenith engine
Bill Mills, Zenith engine
Charlie Johnson, Dragonfly engine.

Pringle, w/ Beauvais a very close 2nd…..
My vote’s for Bill.
William, I have to go with Bill Beauvais…the hand behind the back clinched it. Jaunty, indeed.
“Snow Suit” all day.
I have to say Bill. Plus when it’s all done his corvair powered flybaby will be the one to remember!
Charlie – most true to form (without a sword).
With out a doubt it is Bill “Snow suit” Beauvais.
Lou Cassella, Lot of action in this photo.
I vote for me. 😊
This is great!
I vote for Lou Cassella
Is that a new test propellor?
Same old one, a 63″ Warp Drive with reshaped tips and a new paint job.
He looks like he’s about to be blown away and he’s really happy about it !
Well done to all!
Bill “Snow suit” Beauvais, all the way!
I’ll vote for Lou or is it Jack Sparrow withot the hair and pirate hst?
Lou Cassella gets my vote
Bill “snowsuit” looks like the captain of an 1800’s whaling vessel.
Lou Cassella since he looks a bit like me and I can’t wait to see me in that pose.
Captain Beauvais. Great pose, great engine. Congrats to all of you!
