With weather finally suitable for vintage gliders, a small group met and flew the Sedbergh for the afternoon. It was extremely cold in the northerly air flow but we all managed a few flights each. Mike last flew a Sedbergh as captain back in 1979 and it was great to see him flying solo again after a few check rides, I knew we could weane him off the windmill up front!

After flying the Sedbergh was de-rigged and loaded into the newly refurbed trailer ready to be taken to Bicester for a complete refurbishment.

These are the first photos of the Swallow, rigged and awaiting paperwork for its first flight. I’m sure all will agree Al has done a fantastic job and it looks absolutely stunning.
