New Jersey born Chuck Naegeli has a fascinating life story. As a young man, he was a Boy Scout, Eagle Scout and in the ROTC. Chuck was good with his hands and built lots of things. “I was meant to be associated with aeronautics,” he said. After graduating Georgia Tech with a degree in aeronautical engineering, he was assigned at Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio, during WWII. “The Air Corps got priority,” said Chuck. He became the project leader modifying airplanes for the US Army Air Corps. For four years he experimented on military planes, naming an F-5D ‘Bobbie’, the nickname he called his wife. ‘Bobbie’ only flew once that he knew of.
