When I get back home from Vegas I’ll have to look if it’s in the suspensions and levitations book. I don’t recall seeing it there. Patent is always an interesting look. Glad you found it 👍🏻
Kind Regards

Correct! I've never seen anything like it!

As far as David’s “flying” is concerned, I’m really not sure that Foy’s track on track compensator system had any actual inspiration for John’s design for “Flying” outside of it also being a multi axis rig.


That is the big deal about that system. I did not get as good a look at it as I would have liked. When you work with D.C.'s people, it's not protocol to ask too many questions... lol!

I’m not sure where Doug fit in. The Astarte is totally different than any Foy system that has ever existed. As far as David’s “flying” is concerned, I’m really not sure that Foy’s track on track compensator system had any actual inspiration for John’s design for “Flying” outside of it also being a multi axis rig.

You didn't see Merlin ?
One of the last living 1-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.
