  • Name Tom's Plane Contest

    The 2nd day of the Cumberland Summer Soar for Fun offered a full day of amazing flying conditions and was the perfect time for Tom to maiden his new one-of-a-kind scratch built Big Beautiful Bird.

    Everyone witness to the event wanted to know what the sailplane was...what is it called???

    So... seems appropriate to have a contest!

    What name do you think it should have???

    Well...go or no-go time!!!

      I vote for Da Lumber Yard. On it's wing should be a decal saying "Da Lumber yard" with a pic of Inspector Kemp, from the movie, Young Frankenstein.
