  • OX5 Aviation Pioneers Membership Rosters - 3 issues 1976/86/92

     Extensive membership rosters of this famous early engine-related organization, each about 100+pages, 5.5x8.5".  Even though many (if not all) of the early flyers of a/c with this engine have passed on, this organization is still alive and well with national conventions and local chapters.  These rosters may well be a key to "picking" some interesting history.  Very good with some internal highlighting.
