Sal Taibi, one of the greats of Free Flight and the creator of many classic designs has passed away. He started out on the East Coast of the USA as a founding member of the Brooklyn Skyscrapers and later moved to the West Coast living in the Los Angeles area. For many years he was a supplier of balsa wood. He was a designer, builder, flyer and competitor but most importantly a mentor and friend to many people.
Kevin Sherman of the SCAMPS club has put up some Sal Taibi pictures on the SCAMPS Facebook page and people have been writing nice comments.
