DC-8 Jet Collection

spent 25 years in the RCAF as aircrew on Maritime Patrol Airplanes and Helicopters,
and flew for a total of 6800 hours on fixed wing airplanes, along with 1200
hours on helicopters. He started collecting airplane models just 6 years ago
and in that short time has amassed quite an impressive collection. Al is also
busy writing Navigation tutorial for Computer Pilot Magazine, where his "Round
Robin Adventures" are a regular monthly feature. The term ‘Round Robin’
comes from an old RCAF tradition for pilot training. A Round Robin meant to
fly to a few (2 or 3) airports and finishing home. The reason was to familiarize
the pilots with the different alternates, used in case of a need for diversion
due to weather or aircraft problem. Al resides in British Columbia, Canada
and plans on spending his retirement years in refinishing old and new airplane
models, in his restoration and paint shop. As another variation on how the
models are displayed, we have decided to list his models by the Model Manufacturer,
separating the metal models from those made of resin, plastic or fiberglass,
rather than listing them by airline or airplane manufacturer.
I hope you will enjoy my friend Al’s beautiful collection!
