Windspiel was owned and operated by Pete Bechtel (yes, of Bechtel Engineering fame) out of Santa Rosa, Ca. As a kid, I lived in a nearby town, so guess where I used to hang out?? Pete was an interesting guy, and was not working in any way with his brothers at the engineering firm. He got to build and fly gliders instead!! There's a complicated story there somewhere...

Great history there John.Thank you.
Would love to get a pdf of that catalog if at all possible.
Do you hang with the Nuker?
