Photo at right: Rich Salter sent along this photo of a Super Ringmaster built by his father, Dick Salter of Tenino, Wash., just after he returned from Vietnam in 1969. The plane is still flyable today after hundreds of flights and is part of Dick's extensive fleet of planes. As many of Dick's friends know, he is currently quite ill. Rich plans to do an article for Flying Lines about Dick's extensive modeling career. Rich Salter photo.
