Glider Point in Yorba Linda -circa 1990-ish

Was rummaging through some old photos and scanned a few interesting ones. Some oldtimers might recognize some people and planes.
Possibly Dale Winders (of Gigilo fame).









The Gryphon

I seem to recall this guy said he was the son of the guy who designed the Gryphon, and he could fly that thing like I could only dream of flying!



Some pictures taken with a cheap camera stuck to the side of my old BobCat.

Really cool.

I see that there's not much tall bushes or foxtails either. I heard you could drive up the hill back in the days....

Forest thru the trees

Oh yeah the tree is there all righty a mere infant of its present self.
Fourth picture down.....a real plane eater.
Dunno why anyone would fly there...Temple hill has much better lift....and better access with being a drive up and fly site...just drive up around the back...
