Nice. thumbsup

I remember when Hungary Joe used to fly with his dog Brownie.

I first met Burke Ewing when he was with the 'Tutt Flyers' ? (~ 1979 )

Hey,

It was Burke's flights with Curtis that inspired me to fly with Osceola, the one-winged Bald Eagle. Thanks Burke and Curtis!

I've started making a harness for my dog... it will probably take me a while to find the time to complete it, but at least I've got it started...

I'd have to get a tandem glider to take my dog up! I've thought about it but think my dog is happier on the ground Laughing

Phil Haines often flew with his dog at Morningside.
When the glider was set at launch the dog climbed in it's harness and waited to fly.

Dan Meenach flew many times with his dog at Teco mt WA

I heard a pilot in LA launched with his dog hooked in but pilot unhooked,
both survived and dog had his first solo.

I always enjoyed watching Curtis and Burke at Torrey.
My dog at that time was a Great Dane and there was no way, but he would
get jealous. Mr. Green

Shilo has her D4...

She's the perfect size for flying too, and super smart. Ryan's dog Jackson... he's a big boy! He'll be a little harder to carry.

that will be fun , hurry and get it done , only Jackson will have to help you run . how good is he at running on his hind legs . you would have a hard time lifting him , on launch

if anything happened to you 2 Des would realy miss Jackson Laughing

just kidden Ryan , wouldn,t happen any way Laughing

I first saw Burke and Curtis at Torry forever ago. Unfortunately a few months after Curtis was killed running off the cliff at Torry chasing Burke as he launched.

Hi, Just wanted to let everyone know that you've got the story ALL WRONG. Curtis DID NOT die following me off a cliff, he died of old age after a long and eventful life!

Burke Ewing

Note: Photos of Curtis' last flight at Torrey Pines were featured in People Magazine July 1979. He passed away right before the issue was published.

Hi...............Burke Ewing.........
Holy tie-die Batman! It's the one and only Burke Ewing! Welcome to the Org! welcome The last time I saw you was in 1975 when you won the Michigan contest on a Sky Sports Kestral. Dave Braddock & I say 'Hi". Are you still flying? Would love to have you come out to Sylmar one day.
Cheers, Jonathan
