Seneca- James Watson flew a Brantly ~1962 - 1983 in his veterinary practice in Wayne County PA, visiting area farms including the one I grew up on. Last year at age 92 he wrote and had published a book comlpi8ling his recollections. One chapter is devoted to his flying experiences - many great stories, ie. One of his clients owned the farm where Wood Stock took place. He volunteered and helped transport those in need of heath care to 30 miles away and helped transport people to the hospital. One woman was so big, they finally had her loaded in but the B2B could not life off- close call? Doc flew 20 yrs, never a mishap.

Northern Wayne Library, Lakewood PA has copies of “A Country Veterinarian Reminisces” or I am very glad to send a copy to anyone who would like one. Jut email or PM me.

I am always excited to here from helicopter enthusiasts. You guys are what keeps helicopters in the air. It takes dedication and the will to understand more to keep flying safe. I have flown helicopters since 1968 ( US Army, Viet Nam 1970) and have always loved the uniqueness of rotor flying. They are a wonderful machines and only those who have flown them Know that. I am a airport manager and fly more fixed wing than helicopters (cheaper for the customer to fly) but I know what you know when you take to rotors; I also instruct in gyroplanes. I have not yet been to the PA fly-in but will soon. If you are ever in NW Ohio, please stop in , we can talk. I have 1,600 hours in Helicopters and more than 100 hours in six types and I know that the Brantly is the best kept secret in Helicopters. Happy Flying Tom Dunno, NW Ohio Helicopters LLC
