Nov. 25--Next time you see Dave Rogers at a track meet, don't be surprised if he affects an English accent and introduces himself as "Rogers, Dave Rogers."
Because Rogers, a longtime figure on the local running scene, is co-owner of an aviation company that provided one of the high-tech toys in the new James Bond movie "Die Another Day," which opened Friday in U.S. theaters.
In the movie, stars Pierce Brosnan and Halle Berry each fly a "Switchblade," which are sleek, one-person gliders developed by Rogers and his Oregon partner, Jack McCornack.
The Switchblades, which are actually flown in the movie by stunt people, appear in only a couple of shots toward the movie's end.
But, hey, Rogers and McCornack have made it to Hollywood.
