Gliding at Warwick - Mid 60's



photo provided by Laurie Simpkins


Laurie estimates that this photo (showing hangar with no clubhouse) was taken in the mid 60's when his Dad (Gilbert Simpkins Snr.) was first learning to fly. He also adds that, while he would be happy to be corrected, he thinks the green VW just in picture was the Simpkins family car, the people in the photo include his Dad and Ivan Watt, and the gliders are the Kookaburra, the Slingsby T.41 Skylark 2 (now GRB) and the Bocian.
