ROBERT S. ANGLE (1907-1979)
(CNAC 1941 - 1943)
(CNAC Captain - 194?)
(Hump Flights - XXX)

My uncle and aunt, Emil "Scotty" and Georgi Scott were very good friends with Bob and Chris Angle. I will tell the story of Bob and Chris through the letters that Chris has written to me the last few years.

In November 1937, a bon voyage party sending Scotty Scott off to China as a flight instructor under Chennault for the Chinese Air Force, takes place on board the Coolidge. Georgi is in the poka-dot dress (check the matching shoes) and her "Scotty" is standing to her right -- with the curl hanging over his forehead. The only other person I have been able to identify in this photo is Chrystal Schultz -- soon to become Mrs. Robert Angle. Chrystal is in the center wearing a dark dress and hat, and Bob Angle's wings on her bodice.
Can you identify anyone else in this picture? If so, please contact me. Thanks.
Until then, please check out this very interesting story about this picture.

Now let's see, in todays USDollars this check would be worth about $700.00 -- maybe $1.3 Million, but who knows???


Chris wrote a book and had it pre-published in 1993. I wish someone could/would take on the job of getting the book published.
