Fwd: A note about the upcoming AMA elections.

I'm forwarding this as a regular club member and fellow modeler, not as the
club president. Please don't think I'm trying to endorse any candidate in
an official capacity... Since I received my AMA election ballot in the
mail yesterday, I thought I'd share this with you so you were aware of at
least one other candidate.

How A Rogue 1950s Drone Fiasco Ended With 208 Rockets Fired At Southern California

How A Rogue 1950s Drone Fiasco Ended With 208 Rockets Fired At Southern California

These were actually used against Japanese shipping in the Pacific during WW2. They were packed with explosives and flown by radio control. They think that this may have been where the Japanese got the idea of the Kamikaze attacks against U.S. War Ships.
