Thanks Mark!

Looks like someone hacked into Peter Leonard's website. I deleted those links.

The great thing about WWI community is we have some really cool people. One such fellow is helping Peter Leonard bring back his website. Most of it can be found here. If it does not load right away click on the word in the lower right corner. "Impatient?"

Artist Robert Karr is steeped in aviation research. Some of you might remember his 94th Aero Sqdn 1:48 Nieuport 28 diorama as seen in Windsock?
