Just got my USPHA “Pilot” magazine. Fun looking back and seeing how far we’ve come. It’s hard to believe it’s been 50 years. I thought it might be fun for the seniors in our midst to post some old photos. Attached is my 50 year old pic of a home made “Flexi-Flyer” I built from irrigation tubing and plastic sheeting. It did fly though I never got very high or went very far. I look forward to see what gets posted.
I don’t know if I have any photos left of my first (plastic sail) glider called a “Cliffhanger”, but this inspires me and I’m going to go through my garage! (It had a kids plastic swing seat from Sears- kind of like what I think you’re using in the photo?)
Hey Jonathan- got any photos of your first gliders?
