“Captain Morgan” Contest at #39

Builders.

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”.

  1. William, I have to go with Bill Beauvais…the hand behind the back clinched it. Jaunty, indeed.

  2. I have to say Bill. Plus when it’s all done his corvair powered flybaby will be the one to remember!

  3. Joe Pringle
    He looks like he’s about to be blown away and he’s really happy about it !
    Well done to all!

  4. Lou Cassella since he looks a bit like me and I can’t wait to see me in that pose.
