KETTERING BUG DESIGN AND BUILD
Almost 100 years later, this full-size replica of Kettering Bug designed and built by Joe Bok and his Aero Telemetry Team. The background and technical details of the Kettering Bug were meticulously researched for historical accuracy and re-designed with many of the same materials and techniques that were used to build the original.
