12-14th August 2016.   We have witnessed a unique Glasflügel FlyIn at perfect weather last weekend at the airfield in Saulgau (EDTU).

 More than 200 participants were able to be there and visited with their Libellen H-301, BS-1, Std.Libellen, Kestrels, G-604, Club Libellen, Hornets, Mosquitos, Glasflügel 304 und Falcon the birthplace of their gliders.

Five tow planes moved tirelessly the beautiful sailplanes  in the air and the glider pilots were able to enjoy flying over the "home and the nice country side of Swabia.

The boundless blue sky decorated with a few Cumulus clouds and good blue thermals attracted gliders, and they circled and slid away high in the pale blue and sailed into the distance. But dinner you rallied all again at the airfield - together "at home".

Only a good mood prevailed at the pilots. It was "gefachsimpelt", narrated, laughed, and exchanged memories. All around, a very successful Glasflügel FlyIn 2016 thanks to the organization of H-P Mayer with his wife, Peter Knoll, Karljosef Kades and the pilot group of Bad Saulgau.

 Saturday night was followed by a very well researched and interesting lecture of P.Selinger about the history of the development and use of fibre glass for the construction of aircraft.

 A short exchange of memory by former employees of Glasflügel was the grand finale of the evening. The designers were M.Hansen, K.Keim, J.Renner, T.Uoti, J.Prasser, production manager H.Streifeneder, test lead H. Müller, former employees and inspector Albert Metzler, employees of staff W.Reitz, J.Rundel, also employees of Start + Flug, O.Nusser, A. Güntert.

 Almost the entire family Aeberli-Bortoluzzi of Switzerland has attended the meeting, whose grandfather gave the initial impetus to the sailplane construction business at Glasflügel

Sunday morning started with an exceptional experience as a formation of three towplanes of the BL-Formation towing 3 G-604 could be admired in the skies of Bad Saulgau.

 

The most widely travelled guest came from New Zealand/ England and Finland. The New Zealander Justin and Gillian Wills, who own the Libelle 301 Werk-Nr.100, spent two beautiful days in Saulgau. Justin  flew for the first time the G-604 on Saturday and the Falcon on  Sunday.

 We thank H-P Mayer, the pilot group of Saulgau, host of the airfield and all participants for this successful weekend.
