Incredible Adventures
Wings On Wheels
Motorized Go-Cart Planes
Avitop is proud to present Wings on Wheels by Prattworks Inc.. Wings on Wheels are custom designed motorized Go-Cart Planes, made to the buyer's specs. We saw the planes for the first time at the Alliance Airshow 2002 and we were amazed at the craftsmanship and detail put into these planes. Featuring them on our site was a must !

The following is presented with the approval of Prattworks Inc.
(May 28, 2002)
The P-40 Fighter plane was flown during WWII by the Flying Tigers, an American Volunteer Group in China, commanded by General Claire Chennault.
Back View Showing Ret. Maj. Gen. Charlie Bond's autograph and brief biography on the tail of plane. Ret. Maj. Gen. Bond flew the #5 P-40 during WWII and a replica of his plane is hangered at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison, Tx.
Ret. Maj. Gen. Charlie Bond was born in Dallas, Texas on April 22, 1915. He began his military career in July, 1932. Bond, who joined the Flying Tigers in September, 1941, was credited with ten victories, was shot down twice and was awarded China's Fifth Order of the Cloud Banner and Seven Star Wing Medal. In addition to his Chinese decorations, Bond was also awarded the Distinguished Service Medal, the Legion of Merit with one oak leaf cluster, the Army Commendation Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross (British), the Order of the Southern Cross (Brazilian), the Purple Heart and numerous other service and campaign medals. During the Warbirds over Addison Airshow over Memorial Day weekend, May 25th.-27th., Ret. Gen. Bond was present. He was pleased to autograph the tail of both sides of the replica built by Prattworks Inc., and we were honored that he did.
