My Friend, Mentor, Flying buddy, Les Anderson, L.S.F.#13, Passed To the other side of the clouds on September 28th 2008, at Mindon Nevada. Of heart complications. He was 78 years young. I met Les in 1968 on MT. Tam, Marin Co.Ca. Flying his trusty Graupner Cirrus. I needed help, and he stepped in to guide me through the landing! We hit it off and we both eventually took sailplane lessons. We bought an L-Spatz lll and flew for years in northern California. We got into Astronomy and traveled far for dark skies and new Soaring locations. He moved to Mindon To fly the Sierra Wave, and Trout fishing. Ill miss his kindness, and helpful Airplane wisdom! He was A model sailplane champion all through the 1960's. A member of the North Bay Soaring Group, and CD. of many contests. Bob Hansen
