During the BK Servos Power Hour, several pilots, including BK
Servos owner, Bert Kammerer, flew formation with their helicopters.
Each morning before the pilots’ meeting, JC Zankl presented the
flag during the national anthem by flying it from a Gorham Model
Products Competitor. JC’s helper, Roger Seward, made sure the
flag never touched the ground. Flying the flag from a helicopter
was a tradition in the early days of the Jamboree starting with
Mike Swift and Ralph Dalusio. JC brought it back last year.
