|A selection of early Wasp hang gliders|
Two of the five gliders donated are CB 240's these are the best examples we have of this early cylindrical leading edge design. Donated by David Lyne (photo left), before he set off to sail around the world (best of luck!) .
Thanks to Johnny Carr we now have a fine example of a Magic 4. Johnny is still a big name in Hang Gliding and wish him well for the future (Cheers!).
|Guy pick up|
During November two gliders were transported from Liverpool for the collection by Guy Morris. A Typhoon S was donated by Bill Huyton, together with an early flight deck (RAF altimeter and pithball vario) and valuble items for the archive. Mrs Jean Price gave her late husband's Vision, harness and instruments.
|Johnny Carr and Carina from the Museum|
A Wasp Falcon 3 was collected from Harrow (Mr M.E.Martin) while on a trip to visit and interview Johnny Carr. A large Solar Wings Typhoon, given by John O'Neil, was also collected. During the same trip some harnesses given by David Lyne were collected from the care of Ron Richardson, who has made an excellent recovery from his recent injuries.
|Two Donations for late 2003|
Trevor Ackroyed has kindly delivered his donated Hiway Explorer all the way from Brighton to Weston-S-Mare, thanks Trevor ! A few days later Ian Meaden (Photo) also donated his Wasp 229, which we rigged and we filmed for the museums web site.
