The 1954 Larson Falls Flyers, which were built from the late 1930s until the last model in 1960. Little Falls was the boyhood home of Charles Lindbergh, thus the name 'Falls' for Little Falls and 'Flyer' for Lindbergh. The boats were designed to look like an airplane fuselage and were, and still are, fast and nimble on the water. This boat has appeared at Antique and Classic Shows around the country, and was judged 'Best Outboard' at the 2005 ACBS International Show at Lake of the Ozarks. SUBMITTED PHOTO
