Soaring over Kelso

Nice atmospheric pic of the Pilatus B4 taken by Mike Rose in the club K21. Both heading toward Kelso.

Rolling back the Years

Vintage Gliders at Milfield

The Blue and yellow Polish built SZD Foka 4 is the actual glider that won the world championships at South Cerney, England in 1965, piloted by one of the Polish team members. The red and white Slingsby Capstan T.49 was built in 1967 at Kirbymoorside, North Yorkshire, with a total of 31 built. This particular one was previously owned by one of our members here at Milfield. The yellow Swiss built Neukom Elf S4 was built in 1973 and has a very credible 37:1 L/D.
