12-14th August 2016.
We have witnessed a unique
Glasflügel FlyIn at genial weather last weekend at the airfield in Saulgau
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
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,
and the pilot group of 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
plastics in 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, leader H.Streifeneder, test lead H. Müller,
former employees and inspector Albert Metzler, employees of
staff W.Reitz, J.Rundel, also employees of staff start + Flight,
O.Nusser, A. Güntert.
Almost the entire family
Aeberli-Bortoluzzi of the Switzerland has arrived to the
meeting, whose grandfather gave the initial impetus to the
series by Glasflügel Libelle and has always ensured that this
spark is not void as possible.
Sunday morning started experience has never been there with a.
Formation plane towing of the BL-Formation with 3 G-604 could be admired in
the skies of Saulgau.
Who had time, used like to rise the opportunity
once again to remain bright holiday heaven.
The most widely travelled guest came from New Zealand/ England and Finland. The New Zealander Justin and
Gillian Wills, who owners The Libelle Nr.100, spent two
beautiful days in Saulgau. Justin is flown for the first time with G-604 on
Saturday and with Falcon on Sunday.
