Hi Guys,
Just a question on finishing for these 'old birds'.
What is the difference between solartex antique and solartex natural.

So what is the latest Fred? gliders galore being produced and very little local chat about it. I have a house booked for 9 days and there will be 3 for sure and we will run a b&b service for the few to travel for a day or two.

Well, the essential really is :
Biere =beer
Vin = wine
Manger = eat

And after that, everything else is an option really !  :lol:

Yep, they all cancelled a few months ago for various reasons...  :roll:

Ah well, that was close to the UK this year and that might not happen again, well, at least for a while!

And beside this, you have Peter and friend from Austria, coming just for the week end! (Saturday/sunday) !!! Fair play to them!

Hi Fred,

I wonder if model of this will qualify for Retroplane ?

(Wright Brothers Glider, 1901)

Hi Dennis,

Yes, it's a glider made before 1960 and not in fibreglass. Qualify for Retroplane!  :D

Is it for you or plan to make one for the event ?

Fred, only 2 weeks to go, yipee, just wondering if there will be an entry fee or do we bring wine etc to add to the celler, do you need any help with anything? I think I am to provide a 35 mhz scanner.
