Visited HVGC over the easter week  with FOKA 5 EF along with Scott in BG12a AC and Greame Manietta from Caboolture with Cherrokkee NR.

Fantastic week and very hospitalable club. Vintage gliders included 3 cherokkees ( I think all the flyable ones in aus), Open cockpit ASK13, K7, Cobra,Foka 5, SF27M, Dart17R, M200 of course, Bocian ( a delight to fly), Nymph ES56 ( another absosolute delight), KA6, Pilatus ( ex Warwick) and a lot ot of glass from libelle to duo discus.

Flying different machines was part of the fun and although conditions a bit soft at times lots of good flights by all aircraft.

I think there is a glass ship in there somewhere!

If only they had tow hooks !

What a divebrake M200 of course

Checking out the man made hill on base leg!

Lots of holes in the ground,

Two oldies about to launch , did I mean pilots or planes??

ASK13  open cockpit, great video platform and just good fun.

Great week and recommend to everyone. All about having fun and trying different gliders which where quite freely offered

Suspect I will be back next year



Vintage Glider Driver and loving it.
