    • 1990 September, “Helicopter section”, in Model Airplane News, page 91:
      HERE’S A GREAT shot of our author Dave Ramsey, who seems to be doing the impossible—flying two helis simultaneously! Actually, he isnt’t; a flying buddy maneuvered his machine into the shot, just to create the illusion.
