    I understand that you have a Hover-Air HoverHawk in your collection. I was a co designer of that hovercraft along with Mike Hart when I worked as a designer at Hover-Air between 1968 and 1972. I emigrated to Canada in 1980 and now live in Arthur Ontario. If I ever get to Winnipeg I would love to see it but I would like to ask if you have any photos that you could share. I remember well the sales visits to North America happening. Thank you for preserving some of my past.
