    Barnaby Wainfan was scheduled to present a forum on "Light Airplane Drag Reduction". I was unable to attend.

    Is a copy of the presentation available?

    Thanks,

    Dave Yeoman did EAA forum recordings for forty years. His family donated the reel to feel recordings to the museum. They have to be digitally recorded for easy access. Hopefully this will happen soon. Wainfan had a few years of drag reduction forums. He talked about using tape and the round part of plastic spoons to get a few more mph out of a plane.

    Wrong plane. Sorry, Confusion between Merlin and Gropo Trail. Did a pilot report on the Trail. Nice airplane. Reminds me of a 3/4 scale Champ.

    They don't record the forums anymore, sadly. I have Wainfan's Low aspect ratio cassette tape from 20 years ago.

    Bummer. When the new forum buildings went up Yeoman tried to get all the wires laid out but IIRC they were dug up or something like that. With the internet I am surprised some of these forums are not broadcast live like the Theater in the Woods. Mike Collins forgot his mic was still on when he was walking out after he was on stage LOL.
