Aileron[edit]

I wonder whatever became of him. Truly sad that he was left without a master/owner. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexander414 (talkcontribs) 22:35, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Nickname[edit]

LOL I am curious how the nickname Hurensohn came about, as it is German for son of a whore :)

Quibble[edit]

As I recall, Art Scholl died while practicing for a scene, not during actual filming. His words were heard on radio, but there is no film record of the crash into the Pacific Ocean off the Southern California coast, which is part of the reason neither he nor wreckage of his plane were ever recovered. Can anybody confirm this? Quicksilver 22:44, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, that sounds right. R.I.P. Art... FeloniousMonk 22:54, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
I am lucky enough to have met Art Scholl's mechanic, who was flying the chase plane when Scholl crashed and saw the accident happen. He told me that the plane hit the water so hard that it was little more than bits of wood floating on a gasoline slick. It's reasonable to assume then that his body was in the same condition.

Needs a lot of work[edit]

This reads like an advertisement or a fan blurb. Truth be told, it is an advertisement or a fan blurb. Gwen Gale 10:42, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

... and the preceding comment was written by someone who never saw Art Scholl perform, I presume. Anyone familiar with his life and work would say the Wikipedia article is fair, though a bit understated. —QuicksilverT @ 11:17, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
... As a teen in California, an airport rat, I both saw Scholl perform, met him an airshow at the Riverside Raceway, and have his autograph in an early spotter book. I believe that this article is a reasonable assessment of his career, and import as an aerobatic pilot. Mark Sublette 01:16, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Mark SubletteMark Sublette 01:16, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
I was in the Air Force, stationed at Norton AFB in 1970 when I took several classes from Art. I loved the man, and as busy as he was, he always had a moment for anyone who wanted to share a story with him. Best damned pilot I ever knew. Rest in Peace, dear friend. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 164.154.60.28 (talk) 15:17, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
I saw Art at Brown Field, San Diego in the 70's. He played the part of a "drunk" who got into a J-3 and performed the most amazingly violent side-slip/stall feather-light, one-wheel touch-and-goes with unbelievable finesse. Nobody else could have done such an amazing show without destroying both the little low-performance aircraft and themselves.--W8IMP (talk) 10:28, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
