    Simpler Times and / Briggs and Stratton propellers

    In the 1970's and 1980's when I received the majority of my basic aviation knowledge it was a simpler time. Bernoulli's theorem was not questioned at least not in my world and wings and propellers worked by "suck". Super Cubs like Bic lighters were cheap and expendable IE, a hunter would pay...

There are probably better and worse ones, this one...
