  The International Council of Air Shows will induct Curtis Pitts into the Air 
Show Hall of Fame on the evening of Thursday, December 5 in Las Vegas. 

To appropriately recognize his contributions to the world of aerobatics 
generally and the world of air shows specifically, we're asking for the help 
of anybody who has video footage of their own Pitts or the Pitts of a friend.

We're going to produce a short video that includes footage of as many 
different Pitts Specials as we can get our hands on.  We don't need much, 
just five or six seconds of decent quality video where the aircraft itself 
fills all or most of the frame.   Because we expect to receive quite a few 
submissions, we cannot return what you sent us and we'd appreciate it if 
you'd cue the tape to the most interesting ten second segment on the tape to 
keep us from having to scan through the entire tape.

If you're willing to help out, please send the tape to Hall of Fame, ICAS, 
751 Miller Drive, Suite F-4, Leesburg, Virginia 20175, phone 703-779-8510. 
Thanks in advance for whatever help you can give. We think it's going to be a 
very special night and we appreciate the help that you provide to make it a 
little more special.
