A look back at a beautiful Northwest control-line plane in flight: This is Alan Resinger's Gypsy, seen in flight at the 2011 Jim Walker Memorial Spring Tune-Up in Portland. The plane was powered by a Stalker .61RE. At that time, Alan used the plane in both Classic Stunt and Precision Aerobatics. Flying Lines photo.
