    Cam Blazer & his 1936 Monocoupe 90A

    1936 Monocoupe Details

    Cam Blazer pursued a career in the construction business. You can tell he is a craftsman from the attention to detail evident in every part of his Monocoupe. As with many in the sport, Cam has researched the design and the history of the manufacturer in order to arrive at a brilliant rendition of this sleek machine. It sounds and flies as good as it looks.

    Interview Details

    Founded by Robert Taylor, the AAA is home to an excellent research library and scores of Classic Airplanes on display.

    In the Museum are a variety of artifacts including many antique engines. Here Brent discusses one of their rare holdings, a counter-rotating SIX cylinder, two-stroke motor. (NOTE: most radials have an odd number of cylinders)

    Classic Airplane Music Videos

    Music Video Details

    The designers of the Classic Era were influenced by Art Deco. This art movement is the basis for what we call the "Classic" look of this aeronautical era. To capture this kinetic beauty, I have assembled segments of these craft perching on the grass, taxiing over it and flying through the blue to the accompaniment of music.

    See "BiPlanes Are My Planes" on YouTube. Although monoplanes have existed since very early in Aviation, most people think of BiPlanes when you mention Classics or Antiques. In keeping with this, Brian has assembled some interesting footage of BiPlanes that was gathered at four different venues in three of our United States. <Total Running Time: 6 minutes 15 seconds

    See "A Gathering of Eagles" on YouTube. West of Kansas City is a little burg called Gardner. It has a really nice public airport with T-hangers, an asphalt runway and two grass strips. Every year the field is home to "A Gathering of Eagles". WWI afficianados fly or tow their WWI inspired kitplanes and homebuilt designs to fly and have fun. Included in the mix are a number of re-enactors who dress in WWI garb to enhance the affair. This video is a tribute to that annual convocation. <Total Running Time: 7 minutes 17 seconds

    See "Brodhead" on YouTube. Brodhead is a small town in Southern Wisconsin that has an affinity for Classic Airplanes. For many, it is a natural stop after spending a few days at the AAA Fly-in at Blakesburg, Iowa. It is situated in a rural area and many people camp next to their airplanes. <Total Running Time: 9 minutes 30 seconds
