Announcing the Vintage Glider Club’s 50th Anniversary Book

‘On Wooden Wings’

Compiled by Andrew Jarvis

In 1973, Chris Wills took decisive action to save historic gliders from total neglect and destruction, and so our great Club was founded. ‘On Wooden Wings’ celebrates 50 happy years of flight, restorations, travel, and above all, companionship. With contributions from past and present, written by dozens of great VGC members. Some very special gliders are included, such as the Vampyr, Orlik, Penrose Pegasus, Kosava and Hutter 28 – to name but a few. Innumerable great photos, and many original drawings by artist Tim O’Brien. The book takes us right up to the memorable 2022 International events at Ferrara and Celje. The content is aimed at newcomers to our hobby, as much as to the ’old hands’, and the aeromodellers are certainly not forgotten. There are 172 pages, in A4 landscape format, softback.
