You are welcome! It was nice meeting you, Glen, Vincent and John, as well as some new locals. Glad you guys made the trip down and the weather gods cooperated.

Group pic coming soon.

Another great edition Dale.

Guys order the book from Gary. Lots of great San Diego soaring history you won’t find anywhere else.

Seconded!

I own copies of Gary's books on soaring history here in San Diego and Torrey Pines, plus his excellent biography of John Montgomery ('Quest for Flight') - all are highly recommended. Bonus is I got him to sign all 3 when he bought a Radian XL from me last year. These are excellent, very well researched and documented books with tons of rare pics. I stumbled across these books while looking for info on Hawley Bowlus (also highly recommend the book 'On The Wings Of An Albatross' ) when thinking of scratch building a model of one of the early Bowlus designed/Lindberg flown gliders (off Point Loma, in fact).

He also has a book coming out soon on Park Van Tassel and the history of ballooning in the West, I've pre-ordered that as well.

PS - There is a TON of vintage movies of San Diego related soaring/aviation history content on the San Diego Air and Space Museum Youtube page - check it out at https://www.youtube.com/user/sdasmarchives.

Finally Flew Sunset Cliff's.

9mph NW and sunny.

My first time there and it was great. No issues and lots of room to land.

Do you refer to the Bowlus Model A?

That's one of them - where did you find that (FF) plan? Would be a great time saver!

FYI for you local SD slope guys - haven't been active for the last year due to a combination of factors, and will be making a temporary move to LA/OC later this ear (then moving out of state shortly after). Will likely be selling off a bunch of slopers, kits of all types, large scale sailplanes and a few RTF electrics to thin the fleet before the move. IM me if you have any interests...
