Turner Airplanes: Elusive Literature
By Richard Jansen, Member ATCA
I BEGAN COLLECTING toys by exposing myself to all variety of toys in any likely venue. One of the more obvious was the antique mall. One in Waupaca, WI in a long ago three story former school building perched upon a hill, looking more like a former poor person’s castle, got me started. There, I was provided an introduction to a very large, heavy, steel airplane with three metal wheels and a large propeller which collectively took my breath away. Such an indestructible “toy” was unbelievable! Its size alone was startling.
