Planetary Grand Tour

Viewing 60 Minutes a couple of Sunday's ago and the segment of Voyagers I and II, I recalled my meeting Gary Flandro at the old Salt Flat flying field in 1968. He was flying a beautifully built SE 5a Biplane. On a subsequent meeting of Gary in 1969 he mentioned that he was moving with his family to Pasadena, California to head up a group of scientists to accomplish a Planetary Grand Tour by way of sling shooting a satellite from planet to planet utilizing planetary gravity. And here was Gary Flandro flying a model air plane?
