Mostly the plastic, expensive birds. ( understandably, but hey )
Whats outside in the heat and cold and weather
hidden under a partialy covering old tarp ... The Blanik :-(
Still I'll bet those L-13's have more hours than they ever expected to get

"The L-13 Blaník is a two seater trainer glider produced by Let Kunovice since 1956. It is the most numerous and widely used glider in the world
. In United States Air Force Academy service, it is designated TG-10C and is used for basic flight training."
