Gliding on

 A flying visit out to the Canterbury Gliding Club airfield near Springfield last Saturday (19-10-2013)was well worth the time.
Above we see the Piper PA-28-236 Dakota ZK-FMT (c/n 7911197) towing the Club's Schempp-Hirth Janus Ce ZK-GPB (c/n 304). The Dakota is leased from Drake Aviation whilst the Club awaits its new towplane. Their old Pawnee ZK-CNG needs some attention and I believe is for sale.
Above - Just recently changed hands is the Schleicher ASW 20C ZK-GTC (c/n 20825) from John Ahearn to Colin Shaw.
Below - John Ahearn preparing the self launching DG-808C ZK-GWD (c/n 8-359B258x23) for flight.
 ZK-GYH (c/n 4301) is a Rolladen-Schneider LS4a and has been listed to Neil Walker since July this year.
 Below - One of Steve Fossett's ASH25Mi's is now ZK-GZF (c/n 25202) and is in the capable hands of Terry Delore.
