The new glider tug of the Gray / Callaghan consortium.

Power comes from the finest petrol engine the Peoples' Republic can manufacture. -- looks really good.

We have another glider tug. Ken's (the other Ken) DH Beaver. 

Aerotow clip taken by a camera on Stuart's tug. From the clip it seems that a "V" tail might be the way to go in tug design.

In memoriam Andre van Rensburg †


sadly I share with you the passing of our friend and flying buddy Andre van Rensburg. Andre flew mostly on Saturday mornings and was always friendly and helpful - even after one of many of his famous less successful "landings".

Our condolences to his family and friends.

An unsuccessful video experiment

Today I tried to capture airborne aerotow video from the glider tug. For whatever reason I failed. 
Plan B next week.

All I have is an aerial shot of the field from the camera on my Gentle Lady.

Not very smooth flying, I wonder who the pilot was.
