Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I have heard that the Great JOD has gone to the great flying field in the sky.

I saw the news on Hip Pocket Aeronautics.

Much will be written in Tribute to probably our greatest ever Free-Flighter.

Just been notified of this by DLJ.. This is really sad news indeed. I had just made my peace with John after a fall out when I was a junior - 46 years ago...

"Rest in Peace" John - one of the greatest aeromodellers the world has ever known

Never met the great man or his brother Hugh, but followed their exploits over the years when they were like the pinnacle of F F flying R I P

Can you believe the Aeromodeller Mag sold 68,000 copies in the late 40.s
