  1. As a Brit, same age as Eric, built a few Sharkfaces, crashed a few, and lost one due to the early “build it yourself” radios of the mid sixties. Lots of fun but where can I buy diesel fuel now? I bought 2 or 3 engines from him since I moved to the USA 50 years ago. I’m an engineer too. Hope he doesn’t need any companions where he is flying now! Just today I was looking at the current one now that the weather has peaked up and thinking I’ll have to call Eric for some fresh fuel. My condolences to his family.

    I am 62 years young and the idea of building my own aeroplane was inspired by Henry Mignet and Eric Clutton , My wife now knows who to blame for my passion and interest in aviation 🙂 Leigh Cave from the U.K
