North Cascades Vintage Fly-In, Hall Bulldog, Skagit Aero, Concrete, WA
USA
The Hall Bulldog was designed in 1932 by Bob Hall for the Thompson Trophy Race. In his prior job as chief engineer for the Granville Brothers Aircraft Company he had designed many sport planes including the Gee Bee Model Z. A Gee Bee, his former design, flown by Jimmy Doolittle ran away with the race. Frustrated, Bob Hall dismantled the Bulldog and it was never flown again. Jim Jenkins, the Executive Director of the Skagit Aero Education Museum, became fascinated by the story of the Bulldog while building his recreation of the Gee Bee model E back in the 1980s. After a lot of research and tracking down every bit of information about the airplane he could, Jim was ready to build a Bulldog. After a 15 year delay, the rare Hall Bulldog is under construction at the workshops of Skagit Aero.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
