"What are these scrapbooks? Are they an elaborate fantasy, spun out of the overactive imagination of an aging man? An outright delusion? Or are they earnest recollections of a lost time, a commemoration of the best years of a long, hard life?"
Maybe additional research will someday reveal whether there actually was a Sonora Aero-Club but at this point I'm leaning towards believing it was part of a scenario created by Mr. Dellschau.
