Drew, does your dad still make the Gee Bee plans available? I've been looking for any and all plans for a while now and they aren't easy to come by.

Thanks,
John

Trying to contact Michael, from Cambridge, Ontario, reference # 8710, in a message dated 11/25/04.

He refers to high resolution photographs of BeeGee's that he owns and that can be found at SkyWorld Aviation in Canada.

SkyWorld doesn't seem to exist anymore. Does Michael? Urgently need high resolution BeeGee photographs.

Can anybody help?
