some type of "reunion" of all the famous of years past...

Well I just got off the phone after speaking to a very-hard-of-
hearing 84 yr old Howard Kuhn. As far as he can remember, he
designed the Buzzard slide-wing RG in mid to late 1971, that why it
appeared in his CMR 1972 catalog which was available in jan 1972.
