Pete Wickwire Giving Seminar        Pete with Model in Hand

     Pete Wickwire is now in his 80's ...  and still going strong.  In fact, he is currently working on completion of a Flybaby project. He is shown above giving a seminar to chapter members on model building at our February meeting at Lexington County Airport at Pelion (6J0). Pete was 13 when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. He got involved with model building when the military asked high school students to make aircraft models to aid airmen in identification of various types of aircraft, so he volunteered and gained an appreciation for model building from that experience. He has also had a long and illustrious involvement with aviation. He has many interesting stories about his past experiences.
