I think if you're just missing a wingtip, you should get a silver.

If you launch a 50oz Spitfire on the backside of passing storm cell, on the other hand, they should confiscate your tranny!

the test is being re written at the moment to do the right thing a separate the disciplines
so its a case of wait and see at the moment but when you look at the way it is written now you can under stand why no glider flyers bothered with it ,it written with an engine as the source of lift. IE first task was raise of ground lol.
Adrian for hitting the tree you would get Bark wings better than the Hurricane landing which would be wings of dirt

I wouldn't go so far as to say NO glider fliers bothered with it.

On another point the awarding of wings I think I'll have to award both Lauire and Adrian their coreflute wings . Lauire for his harrier landing of the pink lady attached to the bungee and well the marksmanship of Adrian he aimed for it and he hit what he aimed at

Andrew,

I would be really stoked to see that Kooka turn up next year...brings back sweet memories of my first solo in one so long ago the Wright bros were still alive.
