Glider on the way

I got an email from Moyes that my glider was sent last Tuesday. Should be here next week. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for no damages. Last year it was fine, but two years ago the box had forklift holes and a broken speedbar.

Gordon Rigg took his glider short packed in the luggage from Oz back to UK. When he got it at Heathrow it had a 45 degree bend in it. Both crossbars, leadingedges, keel and A-frame broken. Only thing whole was the speedbar. He took the sail in the suitcase so that was OK. BA charged him AU$1000 for the extra wheight. Hope they pay up for the damages.
