Test flight of Heath model 1375 fiberglass floats, mounted on a
Piper J-3 plane, over Lake Erie, probably in 1953. It appears
that Howard Anthony sold the floats and design to Replac Corp.
in Cleveland after he cancelled the test flight in June 1947. Photo
from the files of Gene D. Woods.
- hsp26.jpg (27K):
Dedication of SB-104 SSB Equipment at ARRL, probably late 1974.
David Nurse, Jim Cooperider, Al Robertson, Joe Shafer, and in the
foreground, at the microphone, Mike Elliot.

Man and plane. Roger Lorenzen towering over "Baby Bullet", the
racing plane tailored to fit Ed Heath's small and light (110 lbs)
body. Ed won many races in it, and its 150 MPH speed with only
a 32 hp engine is unequaled to this day, says Roger, who carved
the propeller for it in the late 20's. (from R. Lorenzen's file)
- hsp28.jpg (24K):
Propellers. Roger Lorenzen and some of the thousands of propellers
he carved, including the 16-footer for the vertical windtunnel of
the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics labs at Langley,
VA. (from R. Lorenzen's file)
