    I don't think the QSAA is still around. But I have been wrong before.

    Dans' message was posted over seven years ago. I don't think QSAA exists anymore. They haven't had the QSAA fly-in for at least eight years.

    I have a few plaques from the QSAA's Fly-ins in Las vegas. He could just change the dates and pretend he was there.

    What was unique about those plaques, was that you received one for just paying the registration fee. You were in essence, buying a plaque, which resulted in grossly inflating the price of registration. Which was kind of silly, and I believe helped to destroy the event.

    It's a shame Vegas doesn't put on any Big Bird type events. A lot of the modelers wives enjoyed the QSAA events for the Vegas scene.

    Hi - I'm the 'guy from Thailand' who posted about going to the QSAA again - my mistake - I was down with cancer for 3 years but OK now - I hope - and got my facts wrong. Yes, I do believe the QSAA closed shop about that time. Shame - because it was a great event run by very friendly people - a pity someone can't pick up the baton and get it running again. I really used to enjoy the QSAA event and then take in the Top Gun too - also the Lake Havasu Schneider event - all about the same time. MalcolmL Chiangmai Thailand.

    or can I pass a message to dr mike for you ?

    Malcolm thanks, yes he was a doctor, and he was traveling with some monks I believe that he brought over. We had a very pleasant exchange, as I was very interested in his Polikarpov . We were near each other in the pit area. It was a small IMAA event at Bennett field, and I was flying my Brown B-2, Miss Los Angeles racer. Were you at the same event ?

    Yes, I too miss the QSAA event !

    The Las Vegas RC Club put on the first annual War Bird Fly-In this past April at Bennett Field. Hopefully there will be a second annual. It was a very good event. There is also a IMAA fly in the end of September at Bennett Field.

    Hi Ed - I passed on your post on RCU to Dr Mike - I guess he'll respond to you directly ......

    I'm very interested to learn that QSAA have started a warbirds event to be held at Bennett Field in October 2013. Can you please direct me to any more info about the event AND the revitalised QSAA please that I can contact .... I doubt if I would be able to go this year but it would be great to keep in touch with what they're doing.
    In answer to your question - no - I was not at the event where you met Mike. Did you know that he and I won the aerotow event - in 1997 (?) I think - he built a DFS German troop glider and I did the aerotow - and introduced and encouraged him to learn aerotowing - probably with a 'Flyin' King' or a ..... hard to remember ..... long time ago ...... I still have a trophy in my workshop ..... and he left the glider with me to sell which I did to a pal in the Bay area. Memories ..... !!! Mike can tell you more about the DFS if you're interested ....... Malcolm

    I think it was the LVRC (Las Vegas Radio Control) club that held the event, not the QSAA. But the LVRC is a great bunch of flyers too. Here is a blast from the past.
