Melbourne Tafnot 03 23

The TAFNOT plane to Melbourne in ’56, led by Bert & Cordner Nelson, was chock-full of luminaries. Famous coaches included Bill Bowerman, Payton Jordan and Oliver Jackson. Norris McWhirter of Guinness fame was there, as were world rankers R.L. Quercetani and Don Potts. So was telecaster Dick Bank, he of the famed Billy Mills Tokyo ’64 race call.
