Born in the 1930's and a two time Nationals winner by 1940, the Bombshell was a legend in it's own time.
The Buzzard Bombshell is one of the most famous aircraft in aeromodelling, and was once the most dreaded contender in free flight circles, and was later converted to RC.
The Bombshell can be stooged around the sky by any beginner on a 35 or 45 size two stroke. She will take off in 10 to 15 feet, and land slow enough to walk beside.
