PZL Wilga coming to North America to tow gliders

Hi All !
I just learned that one of the first on this continent Canadian Wilga arrived to serve primarily as a glider tug.
Enjoy

Call me old fashioned but I like the older style Wilga with its big radial cowl a lot better. That said, I wouldn't turn down a free offer of either version! (Did you hear that Herr Frisch?!)

Regards,

Steve

I wonder what engine this guy has in it. A crappy continental or an awsome Lycoming. I really like the old ones better, but still looks just as good. I got to go back to Poland and fly one.

Roedel version

Hey guys,
I have the 3.5 scale Roedel model of this version in an all red scheme. Good plane with the right engine. All built up flying surfaces with incredible fiberglass fuse. Great kit but a long build. Neat, neat airplane.

Steve,
The P'cola crew is planning on attending the JR event this year. Not sure I will make it because of other obligations around that time. Hope to though.
