With much help from John LaTorre, I have created the following page in Hang Gliding History. Expect some additions, but I am slowed up at the moment for personal reasons:

Marty Alameda and Flight Designs

I found a photo of Marty Alameda in Glider Rider, so I added it to the page. (I have blanket permission to use images from Glider Rider.)

I also added a John Steinbeck quote/quotation. I had never heard of Steinbeck before Graeme Bird and John LaTorre mentioned him, although Dennis Thorpe also mentions him in his 1983 BHGA magazine article. (Hey, I am a techie!)

From sunny Salinas to rainy Wales: There is also a fuzzy photo of Marty Alameda at Merthyr in south Wales in 1979. He is on the rocky edge photographing John Ievers flying by in a Superscorpion. I used to fly there frequently earlier that same year, but I doubt that I was there that day.
