Tom Hutchison Free Flight Picture Gallery

With the exception of the above picture, the remainder of the 499 pictures in this gallery were taken by the late Tom Hutchison using film cameras. Tom is the one on the right and someone else took the picture.  The picture was taken at the 1973 Pierre Trebod contest in France which was held right after the 73 World Championships .  The others in the photo are yet to be identified.  So many other times Tom was at the other end of the camera as evidenced by this collection of his photos.  Thanks Tom, for your great camera work!  We miss you!

NOTE: If anyone has a picture of Tom by himself, preferably holding an airplane, please let me know. I would like to use use it here in this gallery as a tribute to Tom.  Even if it is a point to a magazine article, like perhaps his Ultimate Dragmaster, just let me know the publication name, date, etc and I can scan it.  Anything is appreciated.  Thanks, contact info is on the details page, use the link below

The pictures were taken at free flight events attended by Tom during the 1970's. These events were mostly FAI free flight events including several world championships. Some of the pictures were also taken at local west coast meets and gatherings.  You may recognize a few of these pictures, as some of them have been previously printed in various model publications of that era, in articles that Tom wrote. But many have never been published before, until now!  Enjoy!
