This clip was VERY interesting to me....   Al Hook has owned his Culver for many years ( maybe over 55 yrs!).   He was an engineer for Howard Hughes for many years and used his Culver to commute to work in the LA area!

The Culver sat outside at Torrance Airport for several years before I went there and helped him disassemble it and pack it in a U-haul truck.  He took it up to Carl Badgett in WA state who completely rebuilt it.  Al and I then (after local test flight) spent two beautiful days flying it back down to Torrance (2006 if I recall).  Some of the clip was our return to Torrance. 

Al has had some serious health issues recently and the Culver is for sale (or already sold by now).  The clip is a very well done collage; done (I think) by a son in law for the fun of it....and to encourage AL.   

Sorry, I feel sure there is no full length feature to follow.
