To those who witnessed the sights and sounds of the prewar National Air Races the name Art Chester will evoke memories of howling Menascos and sleek clipped - wing speedsters whipping madly around checkered pylons, hellbent for the winner's circle. Chester was a brilliant technician, a wizard with temperamental racing motors and a master airman who kept ahead of a perilous game for two decades.
