Look around and Who is in the Hanger under cover ... ?
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
and way more than the plastic birds.
"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."

You are right! I need a second vote!
